A major feature of the park is a scenic 40ft waterfall on Murder Creek, a small stream that flows through the park.

In 1933, approximately 90 workers from the Civil Works Administration labored to improve the park. The park was transferred to Erie County in 1947, making it one of the county's oldest parks. In the years that followed, the county purchased adjacent property, which would eventually house the park's picnic shelters and ice skating facilities.Park facilities The park has dedicated facilities for soccer, baseball, softball and tennis. Several shelters are located within the park and may be reserved for events and gatherings. Trails for hiking and bicycling are found throughout the property. During the winter, the park features ice skating facilities, a sledding hill and cross-country skiing trails.

  • This park needs love, trails are haphazard, mostly unmarked, and degraded. Could be amazing, but the pond needs to be dredged and erosion issues adressed.
  • Beautiful park. Always clean, amazing views, very large. Lots of picnic areas and fields for sports. Definitely one of my favorites
  • This is a great park to hike, fish, have a bbq, family picnic or reunion. All in all clean, out door fun for the whole family minutes off I90.
  • Dirty place. Broken glass on rocks near creek. But I guess that's because of the people that go there
  • Absolutely beautiful.. A mini Letchworth State Park
