Buffalo's Favorite Parks and Recreation

About

The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy (the Conservancy) is a not-for-profit, membership-based, community organization. Beginning as the Friends of the Olmsted Parks in 1978, it entered a public/private partnership with the City of Buffalo in 1995. Through a City-County-Conservancy agreement that became effective on July 1, 2004, it became the first not-for-profit organization in the nation to manage a park system.
