My friend and I discovered the marina while aimlessly driving around Downtown Buffalo. It definitely was an incredible find! We entered the marina and were both amazed by the beautiful lakeside views. We even saw colorful gardens situated along the waters. There are no parking fees, which is unheard-of to us New York City natives. Before exploring the marina, my... More

After eating at The Hatch Restaurant located at this Waterfront Marina, we took a stroll and was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful gardens planted along the sidewalks. I then recognized the flowers; the flowers were supplied by Ball Horticultural Co and PanAmerican Seed co, the company I work for! How lovely to see these flowers in a natural setting and... More

The gardens at the Erie Basin Marina are beautiful. The plants have labels on them so you can research ones that you like. The marina is connected to the Naval Park and Canalside. The Hatch is a great casual restaurant to eat at.

We went to watch the regatta. Inspiring view. We walked up into the tower and that was a breath taking view.

Brought out the chairs and a glass of wine and watched the sunset. Very relaxing and fun. It can get windy so bring a blanket.

Great area to relax with some fabulous street food while running from seagulls. That's not a negative. I wanted the whole outdoor experience, and I got it at the Marina.

Our latest visit to the Erie Basin Marina was in May during the Heritage Centers' 5K Walk/Run where the halfway point was the new Buffalo Lighthouse. We have, in the past, visited the Marina many times to walk, board the Miss Buffalo, grab a bit to eat at The Hatch, or just watch a glorious sunset over Lake Erie. It... More

Had a great afternoon at the Erie Basin Marina last week. Gorgeous day to get away and cool the jets of your busy day. Strolled around, watched the sailboats sailing by on the calm and warm lake day on the river. Really relieves the stresses of the day just to sit back, relax and watch the slow sails going by...

This is hands-down, my favorite spot to visit in Buffalo during the summer months. It's a wonderful place to walk or sit and relax on the water regardless if you have a boat or not. Climb up the look out tower at the end of the road and you'll have a spectacular 360deg view of the city of Buffalo, Canada... More

Nice marina/park, in downtown Buffalo, with an observation tower at the end of it. Lots of people can be seen walking on the wall, enjoying the views of Lake Erie. The kids love climbing up the stairs to get a better view from the tower. If you head the other way you can enjoy the gardens that are located along... More
