It is a time piece from our history from the battleships to the aircrafts. It especially a nice tribute to the fallen soldiers of yester year and the view is absolutely breath taking during the sping and summer.

I was born in Buffalo and never had any interest in seeing these ships. But we decided to take our 10 year old grandson and what a pleasant surprise. There are so many things to see and explore on these boats. The submarine was fascinating. Lots of interesting facts placed everywhere. We spent a couple hours exploring. My grandson loved... More

My boyfriend and I went here in the summer of 2014 to visit family and friends in his hometown. This was one of my favorite things we did! If you're walking along the boardwalk that runs along the harbor to where it runs into Lake Erie, there's a company the does kayak rentals. We chose to go tandem and were... More

The naval park is a great place to start, with the WWII ships and a sub there are also a few places to get great food and drinks and you can walk around the area of the Erie Canal terminus, rent a Kayak or water bike on the Buffalo river. Just one great place to spend a day or two.... More

Touring the boats was the highlight for my family, we tagged along the back of a guided tour . The guy giving the tour was both very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Just went down there on a whim with the wife and kids and enjoyed late summer day and hung out walking around people watching and enjoying an ice cream cone

We kind of just walked around and headed to the coast. We followed the signs for the Naval Pier. What an incredible surprise. Beautiful memorials, several ships that you can tour, great view of the lake. I only wish we had more time there.

A must see on Buffalo's growing canal side. So much to learn about, fascinating info and a great view. The waterfront is growing and this will be one of the destination spots to go to.

I was very surprised at he size of the park. It was cold out but we managed to visit all of the displays representing the branches of the US military. There were many name plaques commemorating service of locals for the various branches. There is the aircraft park (US Navy and Air Force) as well as the "Big" ship in... More
