Woman's waterfront dream takes shape: wivb.com
On Thursday, June 9, Buffalo's newest waterfront park opened to the public. Located in Buffalo's Old First Ward, off of Ohio Street, Buffalo's Riverfest Park was developed by Margaret "Peg" Overdorf, after the land was purchased on September 11, 2006. This year it will play home to Buffalo's Riverfest Celebration, which had been previously located in Father Conway Park.
Features of the Park
Brick band shell
Large, wooden pergola
Dozen comfortable metal benches painted a shiny black
Boardwalk looking out on the Buffalo River
Five docks will be open this summer, with more to come!
