Lincoln Parkway Walking Tour

Sun, Aug 21
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Admission starts at: $5
Abraham Lincoln Statue in the Rose Garden • 199 Lincoln Parkway, Buffalo 14222

Description

Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted to be the principal approach to the jewel of his Buffalo park system, Delaware Park, Lincoln Parkway is one of the most beautiful streets in Buffalo. The homes along Lincoln Parkway, constructed in the early part of the twentieth century by some of Buffalo’s wealthiest families, represent a wide variety of architectural styles. This tour will be a ‘walk in the park’ as we explore the neighborhood and the stories of the families who have lived there!

The tour meets at the statue of Abraham Lincoln in front of the Rose Garden in Delaware Park. Click here for a map. Abundant free street parking on Lincoln Parkway is available. This tour is approximately ninety minutes in length and 1.2 miles of walking.
