Delaware Park is the crown jewel of the Buffalo Parks system. There really isn't a ton to say about the park that other people haven't already, but I really love that this park is within walking distance for me. When the weather is nice and things are clear, being able to walk down here and then do a circuit of the park is one of my favorite ways to get exercise.
It's also a great place for people watching!

I visited Tifft Nature Reserve around mid-April. It was my personal favorite birding experience! Such a amazing variety of birds, from the Northern Cardinal to the Tufted Titmouse. The birds are SO friendly here, that they were more than happy to follow me around and even land on my hands (even though I didn't have food. If you ever do visit this nature reserve, I would recommend that you bring a small bag of seed with you (specifically sunflower seed and shelled, unsalted peanuts).
This was my backyard (I lived on Red Jacket Pkwy) in the 50s and 60s when I was a boy. Such great memories! I skated in the winter and played hockey and slid around on frozen ponds, and in the summer: swimming (sometimes we'd jump the fence and swim at 3:00 after partying all night), chasing after girls on the Casino, played baseball, and annually played a neighborhood game of Thanksgiving football. Golf! What a great course! I could've been a contender had I been managed properly.
