“Wear comfortable shoes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I go to the marina a few times a year and always marvel at the view.You never know what will be sailing by. The last time it was a pirate ship to the delight of the kids in our group. The observation tower is awesome.Please be advised it is three flights up with no elevator but a must if you can. The old wooden carving are quite unique and make for some fun photos. This free beauty is an afternoon well spent

“Excellent selection of flowers - well kept gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

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.

“Interesting Area Along Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

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 is a short walk down to the naval/military park and some historical exhibits on the canal. All of these attractions are listed separately in TA with their own fans. While I wouldn't go back for just the gardens, I would certainly go back for all you can do for free in this interesting area of Buffalo along the lake.

“Great little get away!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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!!!
