The Ancient Forest Near Buffalo That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

Buffalo may be one of New York’s biggest cities, but it happens to be surrounded by nature. From the major natural wonders like Niagara Falls to the smaller picturesque parks, there are numerous ways to enjoy the great outdoors here, and if you make a quick 48-mile drive from Buffalo, you’ll find yourself at the beautiful Genesee County Park and Forest.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

The Genesee County Parks Department website has more information on the events throughout the year.

We love our wonderful parks system here in Buffalo. For a peaceful escape that’s a little closer to home, check out Walton Woods.
