With its central location, the Delaware Park neighborhood is one of the most sought-after areas of Buffalo. The Scajaquada Expressway runs through the neighborhood, connecting it to the Kensington Expressway. West Delaware Avenue forms the southern boundary, while Amherst Street forms the northern boundary. This puts residents in the right location to take in shopping, dining, and all the events of the city. Those who commute to work each day have a short, easy drive.
As part of the Frederick Law-Olmstead designed park system of the city, there are many attractions within Delaware Park for both residents and visitors. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has both modern and contemporary pieces of art on display. The exhibitions change throughout the year, giving the patrons an opportunity to experience many different artists and genres. Other art galleries nearby include the Impact Artists’ Gallery, which features the works of female artists, and the Buffalo Arts Studio. Over 1,000 Judaic artifacts are housed at the Cofeld Judaic Museum of Temple Beth Zion. Admission is free and the venue is open all year long.
Also within the boundaries of Delaware Park is the historic Forest Lawn Cemetery. This cemetery covers over 200 acres and is not only a cemetery, but is also a place of peaceful repose in the beautiful arboretum. The whole area is an outdoor museum with monuments and statues that have been here for more than a century and are placed throughout the grounds. Tours take place every Sunday and each one is centered around a different theme.
Residents do not have to venture far to enjoy the great outdoors. Delaware Park is located right here. This is one of the largest parks in the city and has many features that children enjoy. Walking and jogging trails abound as they wind through the natural setting of the park.
