Your Olmsted Parks

The mission of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, a 501(c)3 non-profit membership organization, is to promote, preserve, restore, enhance and ensure maintenance of Olmsted parks and parkways in the greater Buffalo area to guarantee Olmsted park experiences for current and future generations.

His Legacy. Our Inheritance. Yours to Enjoy … and Support!

His Legacy. In 1868, after designing New York City’s Central Park, Frederick Law Olmsted visited Buffalo and designed the first urban park system in the country.

Our Inheritance. Since 2004, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy has cared for and maintained Buffalo’s most historic treasure. The key to the Conservancy’s success has been the public-private partnership with the City of Buffalo and all of its generous park supporters. A third of our $3.4 million annual budget comes from our trusted partner, the City of Buffalo, while the Conservancy raises two-thirds from members, donors, foundations and special events.

Yours to enjoy … and support! While you enjoy your beautiful Olmsted parks, your support will allow the Conservancy to carry on Olmsted’s vision and ensure this historic gem lives on for the generations of tomorrow.

Support Your Olmsted Parks

Our members and supporters are the core of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. Your generous support allows our dedicated team to preserve, protect, restore and maintain the six parks, seven parkways, and eight landscaped circles … all 850 acres. We count on your financial support to keep our parks beautiful, clean, and safe for all to enjoy!
