215 minutes

Take a tour of the remains of Buffalo’s Olmsted-designed urban park system.

After designing New York City’s Central Park, Fredrick Law Olmsted began developing the first urban park system in Buffalo, New York, featuring a series of parks connected by parkways. This tour takes you through Olmsted’s remaining park system.

These directions are for planning purposes only. While we make our best effort to keep the maps up to date, you may find that construction projects, traffic weather, or other events may cause conditions to differ from the map and you should adjust your route accordingly.

Bicyclists are traffic and must obey ALL rules of the road. Please refer to our Bike Safety section for additional information on safe riding practices. Though it is the responsibility of both motorists and cyclists to practice safe driving and riding behavior, we strongly encourage cyclists to exercise caution at all times as the more vulnerable road user.
