Thanks to glacier run-off and a waterbed in motion, visitors to Twenty Mile Creek at the edge of the Niagara Escarpment can admire three waterfalls: two large natural ones and one tiny cascade, which is located next to the parking lot. Known as Ball’s Falls, the two natural waterfalls were the sites of several different villages during the 1800s, all supported by commercial enterprises owned by United Empire Loyalist landowners John and George Ball. All the businesses depended on power generated by the flow of water from the falls, although the flow isn’t so impressive anymore.
