Niagara Falls, New York 


Hyde Park 


Hyde Park is the largest urban park in the city of Niagara Falls, occupying 580 acres (235 hectares) of green open space. The park was the brainchild of Charles B. Hyde, the owner of a paper company located along Hyde Park Boulevard. Hyde died in 1921 and willed a large piece of land to the city, to be converted into a park for recreation with additional land later donated by the Niagara Falls Power Company. In the 1930s, a dam was built across Gill Creek and created Hyde Park Lake over a swampland. Hyde Park today is located at the corner of Hyde Park Boulevard in the west and Pine Avenue in the south.
