This is a magnet for gardeners who love to see what's coming from the big growers. New varieties of annuals and perennials are planted in sunny beds next to Buffalo's Marina -- lovingly tended by gardeners who will take time to talk about their favorites and what is doing well in the harbored climate.

This is a lovely part of Buffalo, right on Lake Erie. We spent the better part of an hour just walking around and relaxing there. The flowers are spectacular!

What a great way to plan your own garden for next year! Take a notepad and note the names of various flowers and plants that are clearly labeled in the gardens. There are beautiful presentations of so many flowers.

Spent the night on the Croaker (sub) with the Boy Scouts- what a great outing. The staff there gave (gives) tours of the two ships and the sub. You can imagine yourself on any of the three during their mission years with the wealth of information given to you. Pieces of "living" history are always important to take advantage of.

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...
