Riverside Park

Designed in 1898, the 22-acre Riverside Park was the last park the Olmsted firm designed in Buffalo. Originally, park visitors could enjoy the Minnow Pools, a romantic stream with waterfalls and bridges, or walk along a formal concourse and across a footbridge over the Erie Canal. Today, the Irene K. Gardner Pedestrian Bridge links Riverside Park to the Riverwalk, part of the Niagara River Greenway Trail, a continuous trail that links Lake Erie to Lake Ontario along the Niagara River. In 1912, 12 acres were added to the south end of the park and laid out for active recreation. Today Riverside is a vibrant neighborhood park hosting many football games, baseball, swimming, basketball and tennis.
