  • DESCRIPTION: One of Olmsted’s first of three parks in Buffalo, Delaware Park serves as the focal point of the Olmsted system and today contains many of Buffalo’s cultural institutions. Simply named “The Park by Olmsted”, this 350-acre setting serves as Buffalo’s “Central Park”. This is the centerpiece of the Buffalo, New York parks system and located in the North Buffalo neighborhood. It is divided into two areas: the 243-acre "Meadow Park" on the east and the 133-acre "Water Park", with what was originally a 43-acre lake ("Gala Water"), on the west.
