Mayor Brown Applauds Prestigious National Planning Award For Delaware Park

By News

October 1, 2014 – American Planning Association (APA) designated Delaware Park as one of the 2014 Great Places in America; this designation puts Buffalo in the national spotlight again, building on the positive momentum that includes over $5 billion in new economic development activity.

The American Planning Association (APA) today announced that Delaware Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, has earned the designation as one of its Great Places in America for 2014. Mayor Byron Brown, joined by members of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy (BOPC), applauded the selection of Delaware Park, one of Buffalo’s most treasured cultural assets.  APA ‘Great Places in America’ program was launched in 2007 and represents the gold standard in terms of having a true sense of place, cultural and historical interest, community involvement, and a vision for tomorrow. MayorPressConf-APAAward2014


“We’re honored that our historic Delaware Park is one of a select few parks in the country to be singled out by the American Planning Association as a Great Public Space,” said Mayor Brown, noting his administration’s over $35 million investment in parks citywide since 2006. “Our city’s sprawling network of parks, which includes Delaware Park, makes Buffalo a world-class destination to live, work and visit.  And, through the City of Buffalo’s unique partnership with Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, we will continue to ensure this park and parks citywide further succeed at a time when Buffalo enters a new era of opportunity that includes over $5 billion in new economic development activity and the creation of over 12,000 new jobs. I’m honored that the American Planning Association has recognized Buffalo’s Delaware Park as one of 10 Great Public Spaces in America for 2014.

South Buffalo is getting a farmers market. Not only is it getting a farmers market, it’s positioning the market at a significant historic landmark within Cazenovia Park. On June 1st at 10am at the Cazenovia Park Casino, market sellers will come together to sell produce, fresh eggs, fresh meat and honey, to cider & wine, coffee, baked goods, flowers, jewelry, photography, etc. It’s the perfect setting for a market, and should be another feather in Olmsted’s cap.
