It is a good place to see the Lake Erie. The view is pretty good and the parking lot is very convenient. But everything depends on the weather. It is nice to visit when the weather is hot. If it is not, the wind is too big and it is hard for people to stay for a long time.

Glad to see the resurgence of the area. Long overdue what has been done to the marina. First time I could remember having trouble finding a parking spot.

My family and I visit the Erie Basin Marina often when the weather permits. We love The Hatch,one of many restaurants located right along the water. The landscaping has been improved and the boardwalk addition is great.

-Public park. Docks are private and rented annually. Access to docks is restricted to owners/docker holders only. No fishing in marina, Some events like 4th fire works, concerts can cause extremely long delays exiting the marina, plan for 2 hours after an event to exit the marina. Bring extra food, liquids in case of long delays out. Great venue for sunbathing, eating at the Hatch, Parking in front of the docks(first row) is only for dock holders. You will get ticketed 50.00 dollar fine. Signs are up high so look at signage. Dont need your experience to be unpleasant. Great view from the tower at marinas point. You will be towed if you are going to park there and go far to another event. Parking is restricted to marina activities only. public restrooms, Tower at marinas point has a full service store with gas for bat, supplies and food. Ice available. US Customs video station phone at Tower, Buffalo Police and State Police both have slips at dock B1 and B2. US Customs patrols daily along with Sheriffs dept. There is no open grillin on the grass or near the boats especially with propane. The Hatch has great variety of Ice Cream and clam bar with entertainment on various nights with great views of the inner and outer harbor. This is on e of Buffalo, NY's gems created with the drive of the late Mayor James (Jimmy)Griffin who without this would never have happened. Security is 24/7 during the summer and strict restrictions and access apply after 10pm. ENJOY one of Buffalos Gem.

Great place to go when the weather is nice. I recommend parking in or nearby the marina, go for a beautiful walk, enjoying a strong breeze, and continue along the water towards the naval park. Grab some cheap food at the hatch or somewhat expensive food at templeton landing, which offers some of the best views in buffalo from their outdoor patio. My friend has a sailboat slip here, and we've had some great times just hanging by the boat. My only criticism is that they dont allow you to walk your dog here. Such a shame.
