You’re sure to be impressed by the abundance of parks, easy access to the water, numerous bike paths, sports leagues, and even indoor recreation facilities for swimming and ice skating.

Take Your Pick, South Buffalo has it all.


Lake Erie provides plenty of opportunities for boating. The Buffalo River, Cazenovia Creek and Buffalo Creak also run through South Buffalo. These lazy and scenic waterways are perfect for canoes and kayaks. Seneca Bluffs, Cazenovia Park, and the Bailey Peninsula all provide easy access to our waterway.


Visit the Waterfront Section for more information.


Not only are Cazenovia Park and South Park beautiful places to ride your bike, but they are also connected by one of Olmsted’s famous parkways. Follow the McKinley Parkway Bike Path between these two great parks, or to the North End of McKinley where you’ll find the quiet Heacock Park. There is a great bike path along the Lake Erie Shoreline that provides access to our amazing #Waterfront, the bike lane on Tifft Street provides easy access. A new bike lane has been added to South Park Avenue, which will soon lead you all the way downtown.
