“A garden by Lake Erie (and the Buffalo River).”

Erie Basin Marina Gardens
Ranked #43 of 159 things to do in Buffalo
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 July 2014

A garden is always worth seeing especially one near bodies of water. It has been a pleasure to see then expand over the years. It is extra-special that they are also test gardens - just another Buffalo contribution to the world.

This is a gem on the shore of Lake Erie in the downtown area of Buffalo. There are flowers everywhere, a restaurant if you are in need of something to drink or eat and beautiful views of Lake Erie. You can walk out to the lighthouse and climb to the top to get even more wonderful views of the lake Worth the visit. And next door is the naval park. Another wonderful place to visit,

What a wonderful treat to stroll the gardens at the beautiful marina area. I used to live in the area and we came back to Buffalo for a visit. We marveled at the wonderful improvements to the area and the gardens were no exception. They gardens lined both sides of the drive.The gardens were beautifully attended. The various flowers were identified. It was a great way to plan for your own garden. They were a lovely backdrop for the tremendous views to behold. A wonderful place for a stroll. Great job volunteers and parks dept.

The volunteers and park employees have put together an oasis in our downtown area. The flowers are beautifully arranged and all along both sides of the drive. The real treat though are the test gardens, using seeds from both US and Canadian growers...both perennials and annuals. A treat to see any time, Spring or summer or fall! Bring your friends and family and enjoy the view and lake breezes and get an icecream cone from the Hatch just near by and chill!

I go to the marina a few times a year and always marvel at the view.You never know what will be sailing by. The last time it was a pirate ship to the delight of the kids in our group. The observation tower is awesome.Please be advised it is three flights up with no elevator but a must if you can. The old wooden carving are quite unique and make for some fun photos. This free beauty is an afternoon well spent
