A gem in Buffalo NY! I wish we had had more time to spend here. Very pretty park asking the lake. Family friendly. Dog friendly. It was windy on this particular day, we could have spent all day watching the winds break on the brake wall. It was amazing. Had no idea how long this park is you can walk along the sidewalk from Riverside many many miles Im not even sure how many honestly. Cant wait to be back and explore!

Review №2

A beautiful gem on the buffalo water. Great for kids and adults. In the summer they have kayaks and other water fun to rent. Amazing winds sculptures and a fun slide to go down. Small water access with Adirondack chair to watch the sun set or rise. Small enough for a short jaunt with the kids. Beautiful enough for a long date.

Review №3

Awesome open space right by the water of the lake! This entire outer harbor area has been improving and improving. I know theres lots of campaigns doing great things to make the entire area esthetically pleasing and something for Buffalo to be proud of..heres a picture of me flying my LED kite at night, from Wilkeson Pointe:)

Review №4

Such a beautiful place, we went very close to the closing time, so all the shops were closed. But there is a snack bar, and kayak renting, and a kayak dock even if you want to put your own in the water. Beautiful gardens and artwork throughout. Access to the water, although the sign say no swimming, Ive definitely seen people in the water.

Review №5

This spot is perfect. Kayak, paddleboard, eat, drink fly a kite! Great view of the sunset! It has something new every year and allows for as much personal space we are all accustomed to needing.

Review №6

Great spot to look out over the lake. Lots of fishermen there too.

Review №7

Absolutely gorgeous spot, come here on a calm day and see the breathtaking view of the water. Would also be really great to see at sunset I imagine! Great biking path, fun place to walk around or take the kids. Highly recommend!

Review №8

Beautiful place for sunset great place for a walk also

Review №9

Nice short walk with a man made hill. Great views

Review №10

They got a neat snack shack now!This is a fantastic park with a little bit of everything.

Review №11

Its so Beautiful & Peaceful. (I dont think they are moving as well since pandemic) still a great place for biking, walking, kayaking just hanging out enjoying the weather!

Review №12

Gorgeous place for kayaking or swimming. They even have an amazing kayak launch from a dock which is incredible. The beach area for swimming is exceptionally rocky so wear swimming shoes for maximum comfort. (Our feet are used to the soft sand beaches in California). There is a restroom near the park entrance that is best for changing clothes (and babies) if you show up in your street clothes.

Review №13

Nice quiet place just off of route five to sit and watch the sunset. Just a little further down the road is the grain mill that they light up at night. Also a nice place to park to walk the near by path or ride your bike

Review №14

Clean quiet and peaceful.. places to sit and relax and watch nature. Clean bathrooms as well which is a huge plus.

Review №15

Very nice place to walk, dogs aloud, lots to look at and do. Very relaxing, nice area. Easy to find, plenty of street parking available

Review №16

I’ve taking my dog to swim here for years! Now it’s really been built up, and even more dogs come to run free on the dog beach! Plus, the premises sell pizza, snacks, and beer! It’s a great way to let your pup play leash free and have yourself some drinks as well :)

Review №17

Always a great place to bring the dogs. Beautiful view

Review №18

Beautiful views and relaxing area. Went to get engagement photos during sunset and not disappointed.

Review №19

Great area to walk, bike or run. Flat, nice views, and as long as you want to make it. Decent amount of parking as well!

Review №20

Nice little spot on the Lake Erie waterfront. Very cool windmill metal sculptures and fun slides. I took a yoga class down there over the summer and it was very relaxing. Beautiful sunsets! There is also a restroom and a water fountain, and plenty of parking

Review №21

Urban lake side nature park. Just go and enjoy.

Review №22

It is one if Buffalos beautiful parks.

Review №23

Walks, Water, Sunrise or Sunsets, this place has a good vibe.

Review №24

Nice place to walk around. Most people had bikes or rollerblades. Enjoyed our visit here. Perfect weather day!

Review №25

Great walking/biking place at Outer Harbor. Good pace and relaxing for a Sunday walk. Spotted snake and birds around.

Review №26

Great little free beach, dogs welcome.

Review №27

Great space to come to on an Outer Harbor bike ride, or to swim with small kids or dogs!

Review №28

Great dog beach for hot summer days. Glad we have one in Buffalo. Definitely not a place humans should swim.

Review №29

Something for everyone! One of the course windmills on Earth. A nice little park for Kids. A decent beach with Adirondack chairs. Sports fields. As well as a pretty nice place to watch the sunset. The only problem with sunset watching is the break wall.

Review №30

One of the best places to watch the sunset and the skyline. A beautiful place with not too many people. It gets really windy during winters so wear extra layers if you plan on visiting.

Review №31

This park is great for adults and young kids alike. In the summer the park lot fills quickly, but there is ample parallel parking spots along the road.There is a small play area, lots of looping paths, a small hill with cool spinning wind art made from giant spoons and a small native plant garden.A small beach with a mix of sand and pebbles. As well as a big field to fly kites in. In the summer there are huts to rent bikes or kayaks, though its not a great place for first time kayak renters.For adults it is a popular less crowded place to watch the sun set, though once it does, have a jacket because it cools off rapidly.

Review №32

Ambience very good, service very good, menu items we selected good to very good, somewhat pricey in this range but in COVID times perhaps the new normal: 2 diners, 1 salad 2 entrees 3 drinks total bill > $100

Review №33

Beautiful place to take in the fresh air and enjoy the water. Kayaking, fishing, play area and snack bar(when open).

Review №34

One of the best summer go to spots. Really something for everyone here!

Review №35

Great place to bring the family. They have volleyball nets, place for kids to have fun, and a good place for sunset

Review №36

Unique dinning experience. Ample parking as well as handicap parking, entrance e is also acomadating for the handicapped as well. Their specialty is BBQ, brisket, ribs in various dishes, piled brisket and pork and chicken along with with a choise of various sides. There are also other options as well. They also have a bar and a variety of alcoholic beverage to choose from. Service is friendly and acomadating. Reservations are not necessary. Mask is mandatory until youre seated.

Review №37

Nice fall morning walk with the dogs, meandered over to Times Beach and walked through the closed wooded path and broken down boardwalk.

Review №39

Beautiful place for the sunset.

Review №40

Its gorgeous. Views of the water are wonderful.

Review №41

Love walking here. All the trails are amazing.

Review №42

Beautifully remodeled and lovely path by the water. Perfect short half hour walk if you want to watch the sunset, or you can hang around at the cute little manmade beach (with actual sand) or keep walking on other paths to take you around the entire waterfront. Around summertime, they put up volleyball nets, have a tikihut that serves alcoholic beverages such as beer and wine, and have another hut that rents out bicycles/tandom bikes. There is a new bathroom building with water fountains for both humans and mans best friend! To top off this gorgeous newly created addition to this waterfront location, they added some unique metal sculptures that twirl in the wind.

Review №60

We went to the Jack craft fair as we did last year, a fun outing, and lots of food trucks available. Only problem with any even though, is the parking, which is limited to one lot or the road. Not enough handicap parking to ever try to bring hubbys wheelchair. Daughter left me off and then parked, which took longer than I liked. If they could only add a few more spaces under the bridge!

Beautiful park, small quiet beach, great view for a sunset.

Beautiful park. Great walking paths, bike paths. Kayaking. Access to the waterfront. Beach area. Beautiful Sculptures. Nice and clean restrooms. Pet friendly. Absolutely love what they’ve done down there.

Review №77

Great place for a walk, or even better if you have a kayak, as they have a dock to launch it. There are also restrooms close by, and you can rent a bicycle of you want to take a ride down the waterfront. Either way you have a spectacular view of the water.
