Lafayette Square is a small public green space at the eastern portion of Downtown Buffalo between the public library and the Liberty building. At the center of the park is the Soldiers and Sailors monument. The park is a great shared space, and Im glad to see the police leaving the homeless alone during the day. The park was quite busy on a weekday afternoon, but there are plenty of seating area for everyone to just relax and chill.

I know there is alot of history at this small sized park. Unfortunately, I am not the person to ask about that history. I do know alot of activities happen here such as, parades, food trucks, protesting and other community activities. I think its best during the warmer weather to visit, unless you dont mind the cold.

Less traffic and slow business activities. The office I visited was closed due to Covid-19. Abnormal situation indeed.

Beautiful place to hang out in the warm weather. Lots of history at this site. Good for lunch while enjoying the sun.

This is a great place to just sit and relax, and read a book that you just borrowed from the Central Library. In worse times I sat here when I had no home to go lay my head. I sat there for several hours asking for answers to find me a place to live and I got NO answer. I had to find shelter at St. Lukes for a few years until I found a place. Take a good look around at the Soldiers and Sailors monument and the detail involved.

Fun and relaxing chill spot. Sometimes people give away free food for the homeless here. Its very pleasant to watch the city around you as you eat your picnic lunch too.

Let me ask everyone in Buffalo, an even those that come to visit is Lafayette Square somewhere You would take your children to have a lunch or just to sit an relax? How can you when there is always garbage empty beer or liquor bottles, drug baggies or worst yet needles?!

Its in a center of a busy place, ample benches and a nice marble fountain surrounded by grass and tall and shady trees. Overlooked by the Erie Library and located adjacent to public + espresso it is a really nice area to sit down and take a break. Good spot for cyclists.
