The development of the Outer Harbor provides an opportunity to create a world class destination for cultural and eco tourism in our region.

In partnership with Great Lakes ExperienceRiverkeeper and Green Options Buffalo, 21st Century Parks urges the following guidelines be used for the entire waterfront campus:

  • Assure continuous public access -from the water’s edge
  • Dedicate parkland to protect against over-development
  • Assure lake related uses
  • Provide public transportation to Outer Harbor including
    multimodal options 
    such as bikes, water taxis and electric trolleys
  • Eliminate industrial zoning
  • Establish limits for parking for all new development
  • Zone for building height limits to provide vistas or buffers
  • Use sustainable energy sources and practices throughout
  • Complete Olmsted’s legacy by connecting our greenways from Downtown to the Waterfront
  • Dedicate this park to Olmsted; celebrating his prescient concepts in the revitalization of Buffalo’s Waterfront.
