      Threats to the Reservation persisted in various forms and in the 1950s, construction began on three major projects that departed from the Olmsted/Vaux plan – the Robert Moses Parkway, the American Rapids Bridge, and the Observation Tower. Despite the changes, vestiges of the original park remained and the Niagara Reservation was made a National Historic Landmark in 1963. Beginning in the 1980s and continuing to the present, sections of the parkway have been removed or reconfigured to repair some of the damage. This tour will provide an up-close look at the key elements of the Riverway.
