Bidwell Parkway

Bidwell Parkway

Olmsted coined the word “parkway” to describe the ribbons of green connecting major park spaces. Bidwell Parkway, one of Olmsted’s signature landscapes, was named after Daniel Davidson Bidwell, a veteran of the Civil War and coordinator of Buffalo’s first police force.
