A series of pretty flower beds spread out over a short walk. Some contain flowers being tested by seed companies. It a pretty walk along the waterfront. Grab an ice cream or something to eat at the Hatch and take the stroll.

A garden is always worth seeing especially one near bodies of water. It has been a pleasure to see then expand over the years. It is extra-special that they are also test gardens - just another Buffalo contribution to the world.

This is a gem on the shore of Lake Erie in the downtown area of Buffalo. There are flowers everywhere, a restaurant if you are in need of something to drink or eat and beautiful views of Lake Erie. You can walk out to the lighthouse and climb to the top to get even more wonderful views of the lake... More

The volunteers and park employees have put together an oasis in our downtown area. The flowers are beautifully arranged and all along both sides of the drive. The real treat though are the test gardens, using seeds from both US and Canadian growers...both perennials and annuals. A treat to see any time, Spring or summer or fall! Bring your friends... More

It was nice to see a variety of flowers along with the names of the flowers so you could go to a nursery to buy. Generates lots of ideas for next year.

We went primarily for the gardens which were nice but not as extensive as we might have expected - but then again they are free to look at. What we enjoyed most was just strolling along the harbor on a beautiful Summer Sunday. There are fascinating boats in the marina and the lighthouse is visible just across the channel. It... More

We go here almost everyday during the summer months. We bring chairs and seat on the grass looking out at the water, after work, prior to picking up the kids- very peaceful. Then on the weekends we bring the kids for ice cream from The Hatch-Perry's YUMMY!!!
