Let the games begin @ Canalside

Sometimes it’s the little things that really count. Like the addition of a ping pong and pool table to The Ruins at Canalside. These types of games are especially popular in parks across the country, and can draw lots of action table-side. Especially when you don’t have time to take a kayak paddle, or you don’t feel like sitting in a lawn chair, a game of pool or ping pong can be a lot of fun and don’t take a great deal of effort. 
According to Chris Catanzaro at the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation, “The full debut for both game tables will be at the Canalside Open House this Saturday, May 11th (10am – 4pm). Ping pong and pool will be free to the public (foosball coming soon), but a sign-out system will be utilized for use of all Canalside equipment.  
Canalside Food Fight (food truck competitions) and an outdoor reading cart will also be debuting at our Open House on Saturday.”

I moved to Buffalo to attend Canisius College in 2007 and began writing for Buffalo Rising as a journalism intern in 2010. Working with Newell and meeting numerous entrepreneurs, activists and everyday folks who were working to make their city better made a huge impact on my decision to stay here. After witnessing all the positive development and grassroots initiatives happening in neighborhoods throughout the city, I was inspired to pursue a term of service in AmeriCorps and a career in Buffalo's non-profit sector. I currently work in the housing department at the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center of WNY and am excited to be a part of their ongoing efforts to revitalize the Broadway Fillmore neighborhood. I also volunteer as the project coordinator for Artfarms Buffalo. I continue to write for Buffalo Rising because I love having the opportunity to stay connected to those working toward positive changes for the Queen City.
