The Future of Your Olmsted Parks: 5 Year Plan

5 Year Plan Survey_Website Header_Dec 11

About the 5 Year Plan Process

Through this planning process, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy seeks to develop a list of prioritized projects for the next five years. This is an effort that follows the Plan for the 21st Century, our master plan for the Buffalo Olmsted Park System that was created in 2008. We will be releasing the 5 Year Plan at the State of the Parks in May 2019. For any inquiries, please reach out to the Conservancy at 5yearplan@bfloparks.org.

Three Rounds of Community Meetings across Five Olmsted Neighborhoods

Community engagement is key to this planning process. To ensure that we reach all park neighbors, supporters and visitors throughout the entire Olmsted Park System, the Conservancy is holding a series of community meetings in each of the five park districts: Delaware District, MLK Jr. Park, South District, Riverside Park and West District.
