A New Era Leads to a New Name

Ralph Wilson Park is a land with history. The park has been a part of the Buffalo community for a long time but now it has a new name. While change is exciting, it can also be difficult. Will it be hard for our community to stop calling this place LaSalle and start calling it Ralph Wilson Park? Was it hard for the community to stop calling it Centennial and start calling it LaSalle? Was it always a park? Join us in exploring the history of Ralph Wilson Park, its various names, and the ways in which it has been embraced by the people of Buffalo.
