The home of the Buffalo zoo, Delaware Park is a big expanse of green that is great to take a break from the humdrum life of the city. You can choose to walk, jog , run or even picnic here with your friends and family. A fantastic place to enjoy the sun, the Park is a green refuge for many weary souls everyday. If you are visiting Buffalo in summer, don’t forget to catch the highlight of this place: Shakespeare in the Park. Some plays of this celebrated playwright are recreated in this park every summer. There is also a wonderful rose garden and children’s playground in the park.

Delaware Park Reviews & Ratings
I was married in Delaware Park, a little over 7 years ago,and we loved the spot we picked. We were under the stone bridge, with just a few close family and friends. There was no one else around and we felt like we were in our own little world for those few moments. There are so many quiet and secluded spots for walks and moments of reflection. It's a great area of taking walks/runs, walking dogs, bird watching, or just sitting in the shade and relaxing.
Honestly, I haven't been to Delaware Park in over 20yrs. So much has changed (all good). It's still a very beautiful part of the city. I forgot just how beautiful 👍🏻👍🏻
We parked at the Historical Society and walked the trails behind the building. Lots of good memories... Shakespeare in the Park, cross country meets, the rose garden... Will forever be an iconic Olmstead landmark. We left Buffalo in the 70's for teaching jobs but return often to visit family and friends. So many great places, including Delaware Park, to visit and rekindle fond recollection of the city we were born and raised.
I can only vouch for the parts I have been In. I walked Ring Road a few weeks ago. I thought it was very nice. I did see one Restroom about halfway around. No other ones. I did enjoy the sculpture of the deer. Maybe more Items of Interest to walkers would be nice I have been In the Great Meadow as well. Also very nice. I can't vouch for the golf course nor Shakespeare Hill. Never been there. Hot Lake is really nice. Especially to Jog or walk around or to Just sit and enjoy the weather.
The park and Zoo is a nice place to visit. My family and I enjoy walking around the park, the kids can play on the playground. The Zoo is nice to look at all the animals and have a nice outing.
