LaSalle Park 


The 77-acre (31 hectares) LaSalle Park is Buffalo’s largest waterfront park and located where the mouth of the Niagara River meets Lake Erie. LaSalle Park is situated on a former dumping ground that was later transformed and landscaped into a scenic waterfront park in the 1930s. On the northern edge of LaSalle Park is the historic Colonel Francis G. Ward Pumping Station, a colossal five-story building constructed during the early 1900s. The station houses several electric pumps delivering water to Buffalo and the surrounding areas.
