Park Features

Due to recent storms and wind, the Times Beach boardwalk sustained damage. It is closed indefinitely until all necessary repairs can be made. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.


There are great outdoor activities to experience in all seasons.

  • Summer
    We can experience nature by hiking through the trails, photographing the animal kingdom or bird watching.
  • Winter:
    We can snowshoe through the nature trails.

Park Facilities


It is believed that Times Beach Nature Preserve was once a shantytown and then in the 1940s became a dumping ground for dredged materials from the Buffalo River and Harbor, but was abandoned by the mid 1970s. These days, Times Beach is owned by the City of Buffalo and is maintained by both the City and the County of Erie.
