This is a nice waterfront park that is not very big but really quite enjoyable for a walk if you are in the area. If you are going to see the navy ships or a hockey game, this is a good place to chill for a bit. Unfortunately one end of the park is filled with Pokemon addicts – a... More

Crazy crowded, bad parking, and loud music from the Hatch area. We were there on a Saturday night, maybe it is better on a weekday.

Colorful, fragrant, interesting annuls probably planted around memorial day. These form beds along the water path and surround memorials and statuary. Look west to see a period lighthouse. Walk far north to sit and drink and eat or have an ice cream. Shady too.

Great place to walk with friends, family, or a date! There are two or three restaurants on the water and an ice cream stand as well! There is also a tower that offers a great view of the lake. Its located very close to many things including Canal side, First Niagara Center, and downtown Buffalo in general!

The City has done great work to develop this marina making it a lovely place on a sunny day to come and stroll around and look at all the moored boats. In the summer there is a cafe but this is closed from September. In the fall and winter it is great to walk around all muffled up and enjoy... More

While in town for a conference I found my way to the Marina and enjoyed a lovely run, with great views of the water front, lighthouse and more. Was running out of sunlight, and needed to get back for another meeting, so was not able to head out to the lighthouse itself, but it appears to be easily accessible -so... More

Nice place to walk around, see some of the water front sites. During the summer months they have open air music. many places to eat and drink at near by. many optional thinks to do in the area also, like naval park, biking, paddling, sail boats, etc.
