BUFFALO, NY-- Summer is a great time to visit Delaware Park and there are some changes to let you know about.
The Olmsted Parks Conservancy has restored the landscaping between the Marcy Casino and the Rose Garden, and because of that, the handicapped parking spaces have been moved and new paths have been added for access.
“We are proud of this beautiful restoration, and as your Olmsted parks are on the national register of historic places, we ask that the public be patient and respectful of our hard work to keep them preserved,” stated Stephanie Crockatt, executive director for the Conservancy in a released statement. “We encourage patrons to utilize the Albright Knox’s Elmwood parking lot which is now open after hours at a reduced rate, and if you can walk or bike – or even Uber/Lyft - to please consider those options first during this busy 2017 park season.”
You'll find the handicapped parking spots closer to Lincoln Parkway, and it's added a golf cart to help out during weddngs, events and Shakespeare in the park performances.
They also removed the former vehicle access road into the park, and replaced with the pedestrian and bike pathways. New bike racks have also been installed.
