  • Wonderful area to spend the day with family and friends. Visit the Naval Park and museum or have fun enjoying the Buffalo Sabres game at the arena. The canal side is full of many things to do. Helium comedy club and casino is located just 2 to 3 blocks from the canal side. Also, music concerts, bar and grill, ice skating rink in the winter, boat rides and tours, restaurants, and more is on site. Great place to spend the day with friends and family.
  • Great place to take the family on a warm day. My girls loved seeing the boats and walking along the water. The addition of the kids sand/beach area and little places to gets food and drinks makes it a nice spot to be for lunch. The potential of this area is huge, and as a Buffalo native, I am excited to see this progress and what what is still to come.
  • Great place for history, walking and small vendors. They also have free outside larger scale games for the kids. Came back in evening for the Independence day fireworks. We all loved it because of the small town feel.
  • Great place to take the family. So much to do and a nice safe, clean area. My kids love the giant sand box and checking out the ships in the naval yard.
  • Super place to go for live music and food. It's packed with people but it doesn't detract from the fun you can have. You can even hear the Buffalo Philharmonic perform in the summer!
