Great place to be in the summer for music, art shows, food and spend time with family. Also a great place for a walk/run.

Nice big park in the heart of Buffalo. There's tons of events going on during the summer, you can catch concerts and other artsy gatherings. Some areas feature street art and there's a big Shakespeare fest every year. It was designed by the same guy who did Central Park in NYC.

On sunny days in Buffalo, Delaware Park is filled with runners, cyclists, dog walkers, golfers, soccer players, tennis players and rollerbladers, among others, enjoying the beautiful day. My favorite part about Delaware Park is walking by the bison that you can see inside the zoo from the park!

This is a lovely park in central Buffalo. There's horse racing in one part, but there's also plenty of green space to enjoy a picnic or stroll along the paths. There's a really nice lake and a few different gardens to enjoy within it as well. The horse racing is a fun way to spend an afternoon (especially when it's sunny!).

Frederick Law Olmsted, designer of Central Park in New York City, came to Buffalo in 1868 to create a series of public parks. They include 8 landscaped circles, seven parkways, and six parks, for a total of 850 acres. 350 of those acres are taken up by Olmsted's centerpiece, Delaware Park. It contains woods, lakes, rose and quarry gardens, a golf course (among lots of other sporting facilities) and the historic Parkside Lodge (1914). The Buffalo History Museum and Buffalo Zoo are also located here.
