Add splash pads to the list of safe, socially distanced ways to step out and stay cool this summer.

Four splash pads in Buffalo are now open daily from 11 am – 7pm (weather permitting) through Labor Day including:

  • MLK Jr. Splash Pad at the historic Humboldt Basin
  • Centennial Park
  • Roosevelt Park
  • Cazenovia Park (just opened!)


New safety protocols have been put in places, like spray heads within the basin to operate 6 feet apart and city attendants and security guards on site. Additionally, footwear is required when in the Splash Pad and adult supervision is required for minors.

We launched a new look!

Our new design features a better browsing experience, modern mobile navigation, more visual displays of key info, better filtering options on the search page, and much more.

We hope you love our new look! That said, we’re #ForeverTweaking and would greatly appreciate your feedback so we can make *all* you want and need as your go-to resource for the best of Western New York!
