Canalside is a revived Lake Erie terminus, complete with shops, restaurants, a skating rink and over 1,000 activities a year.


Canalside Buffalo is the broadway of the city’s downtown area. Multiple activities every single day make this one of the most sought out attractions in the entire area. Concerts, summer storytime, and yoga show just how versatile Canalside Buffalo truly is. This spectrum just shows that truly anybody can have a great time down by the river, no matter what age or interest. Spend the day and enjoy food, entertainment, and events all throughout!

“I have two children, ages 8 and 10. We have had season passes for the botanical gardens for two years and love it! We go every season, and we always have a great time. It really is our family happy place!”
