In order to create the best playgrounds possible at Delaware Park and Cazenovia Park, two surveys have been released, that will allow the community to help guide the process.
“The neighbors at Delaware Park have been advocating for a new playground for some time,” said Delaware District councilmember Joel P. Feroleto. “I’ve had numerous conversations with the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy (BOPC), and County Legislator Lisa Chimera and I are happy to provide the funding for the new playground. This is a great collaborative between the City, the County, and the Conservancy. There is a similar collaborative with BOPC in South Buffalo, driven by South District Councilmember Chris Scanlon and Erie County Legislator John Gilmour.”
“Cazenovia Park is the central recreational hub in South Buffalo,” said councilmember Scanlon. “In recent years, we’ve made significant investments to the basketball and tennis courts, the pathways, and the shelter house, so the playground is the logical next step. The new universal playground will ensure children of all abilities can enjoy it. This project would not be possible without Erie County Legislator John Gilmour who secured the initial $400,000 to get this project off the ground.”
“The Conservancy strives to create play spaces that are safe, accessible and meet the needs of children of all abilities. Each survey takes approximately 3-5 minutes to complete. All survey responses must be received by November 6, 2022.” – BOPC
