“Best at sunset in the summer”

Reviewed 7 December 2017

I have enjoyed several sunsets, plus nice, long and quiet walks down there. In the summer, with little noise and warm temperatures, it is so relaxing. during the day you can climb the observation tower as well.

If you drive downtown, you should go to see the marina. It is easily accessible and provides wonderful views of Lake Erie. We parked and strolled along the waterfront for a while since the weather was perfect. Would be terrific on a nice hot sunny day!

This marina is great for getting up close views of the lake. Parking is super easy. While the views of the lake are enjoyable, the actual marina itself is nothing special...just a plain concrete walk. I feel like there's so much that could be done to enhance the experience. It is cool to go to the observation tower, probably there best thing about the arena. You have elevated prospects of the lake, marina, lakefront homes, and the city of Buffalo. And of course it's all free! So it makes For a nice little excursion after dinner in the city.

Walked around the marina and docks for a couple of hours and climbed the observation tower. We also ate at the waterside restaurant and sat outside. The fish and chips was out of this world. They have also have a few Navy ships to tour if you're interested and a couple of boats to charter for rides.

I have loved this place since 1980 and it just keeps getting better. it is truly the best place to sit and relax and the Hatch is great. Now there is a restaurant called William K's, it looks very upscale and I will be taking my husband there for his birthday especially because they have bone marrow on the menu. not only that but they have a patio too.
