A beautiful spot to spend the day! You can walk along the waterfront, enjoy the gorgeous gardens, board the Miss Buffalo for a scenic cruise, dine at the Hatch or the new restaurant William K's or just sit on Adirondack chairs and take in the view. If you're up for a climb, 100 steps will take you to the top... More

The Erie Basin Marina is an excellent place to spend a quiet afternoon on a weekday; especially if you're retired and living in Buffalo, NY. Bring a simple picnic lunch and a folding chair. If you get up to go the bathroom of for a walk, have someone watch your chair as unfortunately mine was stolen; but all in all... More

Just a great place to enjoy Buffalo's beautiful waterfront. Activities, festivals, navel park and museum. Perfect all four seasons.

We generally go there on week days, as on weekend it is really busy. Love the scenery. We bring our chairs and sit and watch the sail boats, Miss Buffalo and the Sundance. Love the Hatch for its very reasonably priced food an ice cream. Unforutnately it use to be our best secret, now its everyones!!!

No matter hat season it is you will enjoy the docks of the marina! Lovely park benches to sit by the water, and watch the boats coming and going. Very relaxing. Walk across the street and get a bite to eat. Grab a bench or bring your chairs and just people watch !
