#FunFactFriday: Built in 1887, this bridge was originally called the Dell Bridge and spanned the space between the Beech Banks picnic grounds bordering the present Shakespeare Hill and the Children’s Green playground which is now a soccer field. It became known as the Ivy Bridge in the early 1900s. Today, it is a beautiful park feature adopted by Ingram Micro. bfloparks.org/adopt

Once So Chic and Swooshy, Freeways Are Falling Out of Favor

ICYMI: The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is fighting to protect the Scajaquada Corridor, advocating for a real plan that heals Delaware Park and corrects mistakes that date back to the 1950’s. Last weekend, that effort was featured on the cover of the style section in the Sunday The New York Times. Read it here: http://nyti.ms/2gX0h6h

Several cities face pressure to tear down the 1960s-era mega-roads and reinstate pedestrian-friendly streets. Jane Jacobs told you so!

Sign our Petition to #SaveDelawarePark

Buffalo’s beautiful park system was designed 150 years ago by America’s first landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. In the 1950’s, construction of the Scajaquada Expressway divided and destroyed acres of parkland the jewel of Olmsted’s system, Delaware Park. Right now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to reverse this mistake and restore Olmsted’s legacy – but only if we can convince the Governor to help us #SaveDelawarePark.

Please make your voice heard by signing our petition. Tell the NYS DOT to rethink its current short-sighted plan and join with the community on a comprehensive approach that would reunite the park and reconnect the community, improve accessibility through safe complete streets, and enhance the economic vitality of this corridor for our City. We won’t have this chance again for another 75 years. https://www.change.org/p/new-york-state-department-of-transportation-save-delaware-park-restore-olmsted-s-legacy

Your Voice Matters! Help us reunite the park and reconnect communities.

#ThrowbackTuesday: Frederick Law Olmsted favored water views above all others for their ability to soothe and uplift the human spirit. When Olmsted came to Buffalo in 1868, Front Park, at the confluence of Lake Erie and the Niagara River, attracted his attention and became one of three proposed locations for the future Buffalo Olmsted Park System.
