I grew up in Tonawanda. Happy to see the park well maintained. Very enjoyable to walk along the water in any weather. Lots of benches for when you get tired.

What a beautiful place to walk, bike,skate, or just relax. The park is clean. The scenery is breathtaking. You can bring the whole family and picnic or just do yourself to get away. It’s a safe relaxing environment

Always picturesque, Niawanda Park is perfect for a bike ride or just a walk along the marked path that goes for a long stretch. Restaurants across the street are handy.

I was completely disappointed with the bike path, it is full of cracks and bumps. Some cracks so severe they shifted my gears, I see the lack of maintenance as a accident that is waiting to happen.

Niawanda park is a great place to find recreation of all sorts. There a bike path that extends to the Universty north campus or Downtown Buffalo. There are picnic benches, nearby fast food restaurants and sometimes entertainment at the bandshell. Check it out

Hi all! If you're just there walking, sitting, visiting, anything at all. You'll be pleased. I went walking there recently with my dog, and we acquired several painted rocks. If you're following the rock movement you'd understand. Anyways, Niawanda, is a nice park to visit.

A great place to view sunsets, this park has fishing, picnic tables, bathrooms, bike paths, and is close to hot dog stands.

Nice place for a leisurely stroll or a run. You can watch the boats in the river and see other people. Great place to bring a chair and read a book.

I've been visiting this park since I was a little girl. It's so nice to be by the river and enjoy a beautiful day. There's a boat launch, and also areas to set up chairs or a blanket. There's a great walking path that goes...More

I don't have a dog so I didn't pay close attention...but a leashed dog is allowed during some hours.

After May 31st does are supposed to be restricted to before 9am but I've seen them all times of the day this past summer. I don't know if they chaged the rules. You can always call the cirt of Tonawanda to inquire.
