“Buffalo was a far more beautiful city before destructive urban renewal and freeway construction, suburban flight and Buffalo’s descent from a powerful industrial metropolis left the city in tatters.

However, since the turn of this new century, groups such as the Olmsted Parks Conservancy and many others, both non and for-profit, have begun to piece the city back together, revealing again some of its former beauty. This is important for today and for our future as a community.

We support the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy because it is not just restoring parks, it is helping to restore the soul of our city." -Steve Lakomy and Cheryl Lyles, park neighbors. If you are inspired to make a donation to your parks, visit http://bit.ly/donatetobfloparks
