Buffalo’s beautiful park system was designed 150 years ago by America’s first landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. In the 1950’s, construction of the Scajaquada Expressway divided and destroyed acres of parkland the jewel of Olmsted’s system, Delaware Park. Right now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to reverse this mistake and restore Olmsted’s legacy – but only if we can convince the Governor to help us #SaveDelawarePark.
Please make your voice heard by signing our petition. Tell the NYS DOT to rethink its current short-sighted plan and join with the community on a comprehensive approach that would reunite the park and reconnect the community, improve accessibility through safe complete streets, and enhance the economic vitality of this corridor for our City. We won’t have this chance again for another 75 years.
