Description

Buffalo’s streets and public spaces are dynamic with a variety of histories, architectural styles, and uses. Gates Circle is an excellent example of this variety, which this walking tour around the circle and surrounding streets will explore. Learn about the history of Gates Circle itself, along with the Olmsted & Vaux park system and surrounding streets including Lafayette, Delaware, and West Delavan Avenues and Chapin Parkway.  Along the way, examine the architectural styles present on both residential and commercial buildings.

This tour meets at the end of Chapin Parkway at Gates Circle. Street parking is available along Chapin Parkway or Lafayette Avenue. This tour is approximately ninety minutes in length.
