The Berth of Festival Park

Do you want to see what a relatively low cost high impact waterfront project looks like? Just take a look at Festival Park taking shape at the Buffalo River. Although the park took a while to get started, there is a flurry of activity taking place at this time.

Many of the permeable walkways are in place, as is the concrete bandstand where musicians will play throughout the summer. The transformation is enough to send shivers down your spine when you think about the overall implications of this waterfront asset.

Located a short distance from the waterfront bike trail and accessible by watercraft, Festival Park is sure to become an exciting destination, especially when you consider its close proximity to Father Conway Park and the Ohio Street small craft launch. This location is also very close to the Inner and Outer Harbor, tying together many of the other advancements taking place in either direction along the river. Riverfest will never be the same!
