  • Take a walk down to Canalside while in Buffalo, there's lots of activities happening and lovely long easy walks down to the lake. There are places to stop and sit and enjoy the view along the way.  more »
  • Fantastic addition to waterfront! In winter ice skating, curling and winter festivals. Follow signs to Inner Harbor. Eat at Gene McCarthy's after - great beer & pub grub  more »
  • We went to public skate on Friday of NYE weekend, and we had a good time. Renting skates was easy, I like that the rink has a bit of a bend to it. Rink was busy, but there was enough space. I see how ...  more »

  • We love love love it here. There could be more bathrooms now that it is more popular. Also, when there are big events and the temporary fences are up, it blocks a lot of the sitting areas off. Don't go to Canalside on a sunny summer day if the concert area is fenced off as there is nowhere to sit other than in the blasting sun. I'm sure that as it gets more popular this will be taken care of. Either way, Canalside is a must do in Buffalo.
  • It is so exciting to see so much activity in downtown Buffalo. Canalside has so many fun things to do all year round. All ages can go there any time of the year. The plans for the future will make it even better.
  • This regenerated area is a focus of year round activity. As a veteran, I was interested in viewing the Naval shipyard, museum and public canal skating area. In spring and summer it transforms into an venue for public events of all kinds. Just fabulous.
  • Ice skating was very fun and the pricing was not too bad. $6.00 for adults and $4 for child. Skate rental for child was $4. So for $14 total and skating for a few hours spending time with your child was well worth it. Excellent family time.
  • What a fun and relaxing place along the water! And great for those on a tight budget. Street parking is $1 an hour. There are giant games like chess and checkers that the kids had a blast playing. We rented a paddle boat for the kids and it was reasonably priced. Beautiful views. Public restrooms are plentiful and clean enough. A fun time for these tourists!
