One of Olmsted’s first three parks in Buffalo, Delaware Park serves as the focal point of the Olmsted system and today contains many of Buffalo’s cultural institutions. Simply named The Park by Olmsted, this 350-acre setting serves as Buffalo’s “Central Park.” The jewel of the Olmsted system, 350 acres of meadow, forest and lake. Much has been accomplished toward the restoration of this park – a new playground in Rumsey Woods, restoration of the Rose Garden, extensive improvements to the Marcy Casino, and many new trees planted throughout. The Conservancy’s headquarters are located in the historic Parkside Lodge (1914) which also houses the Delaware Meadows Golf Course Pro Shop. The Lodge’s handsome “Great Room”, tended croquet lawns, and a fenced picnic lawn are available for rental. The Lodge also boasts recently renovated restrooms and locker rooms.
