Future phase
The entire park will provide play space for people of all ages. The Play Garden at Ralph Wilson Park will be unlike anything seen before in Western New York!

Impact During Construction

The play garden will be constructed during a future phase of construction. For up-to-date information, please visit our construction updates page.

The destination play garden will draw families into the core park. It is designed to nurture active and imaginative play, building off Buffalo’s industrial history and the Great Lakes ecosystem.

The ADA-accessible space will have discreet areas to accommodate different ages. There will be adjacent car and bike parking as well as accessible rest rooms.
