Aug 22, 2018

When it comes to convenience, Buffalo parks rank well above the national average. According to a new report from The Trust for Public Land., 85 percent of Buffalo residents live within a ten-minute walk of a park. When it comes to spending on parks, Buffalo is behind the norm.  The national median for park spending is $83 per resident; in Buffalo, that number stands at $69 per resident.
