Delaware Park, located behind Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo's contemporary art museum), has to be my favorite spot in Buffalo. It was designed in the late 1800's by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed NYC's Central Park. Delaware Park is host to many of Buffalo's cultural activities, including Shakespeare in the Park (this weekend is the last weekend of the season, btw) and boating on Hoyt Lake. PRH, EZ E and I often walk around the lake and we've been itching to rent one of their vintage-style wooden boats to take a leisurely row. It would be much more leisurely without a certain baby boy, so we still haven't gone. Here are some photos from a recent walk around the lake though. You can learn more about the park here and more about boat rentals here.

Olmsted also help design parts of the World's Fair in Chicago in the 1890's. If you are at all interested, there is an awesome book about it called Devil in the White City...pretty interesting stuff.
