WHERE IS THAT PLACE!?!?!?!!??! That's one of the most beautiful parks I've ever seen. Gives central park a run for its money.

The Japanese Garden is behind the Historical Society on Nottingham Terrace, near Buffalo State College and the Albright Knox. It's right next to Delaware Park and Hoyt Lake, so it might even be an Olmsted design, but I'm not sure. Does anyone else know?

We can have a late lunch on Genesee if you guys want ghetto pork sandwiches, which actually smells great driving or walking thru the neighborhood.

Delaware Park, what a place.

we should get out and see some parts of the city worth seeing, there are beautiful mansions on Lincoln Parkway just south of Hoyt Lake in Delaware Park, we could always check those out.

The Japanese garden is not part of the Olmstead plan. It was installed in the park in the 1970's when one of Buffalo's sister cities donated a japanese lantern. The islands and a bridge were constructed. It was then left on its own to deteriorate in Buffalo's bad old days. It still could be a lot better but is very charming. Too bad there is a roaring highway just across the lake.
