I grew up in Tonawanda. Happy to see the park well maintained. Very enjoyable to walk along the water in any weather. Lots of benches for when you get tired.

I went with my guy there. I enjoyed our time there. It was my time to go back home. He lives in NT so he stopped here to just enjoy more time together. I didn't want to go home. He knew it so he did...More

What a beautiful place to walk, bike,skate, or just relax. The park is clean. The scenery is breathtaking. You can bring the whole family and picnic or just do yourself to get away. It’s a safe relaxing environment

Always picturesque, Niawanda Park is perfect for a bike ride or just a walk along the marked path that goes for a long stretch. Restaurants across the street are handy.

I was completely disappointed with the bike path, it is full of cracks and bumps. Some cracks so severe they shifted my gears, I see the lack of maintenance as a accident that is waiting to happen.

Niawanda park is a great place to find recreation of all sorts. There a bike path that extends to the Universty north campus or Downtown Buffalo. There are picnic benches, nearby fast food restaurants and sometimes entertainment at the bandshell. Check it out

Hi all! If you're just there walking, sitting, visiting, anything at all. You'll be pleased. I went walking there recently with my dog, and we acquired several painted rocks. If you're following the rock movement you'd understand. Anyways, Niawanda, is a nice park to visit.

Nice place for a leisurely stroll or a run. You can watch the boats in the river and see other people. Great place to bring a chair and read a book.

I don't have a dog so I didn't pay close attention...but a leashed dog is allowed during some hours.
