Buffalo, New York parks system
The Buffalo, New York, public parks and parkways system is the United States' oldest coordinated system of such recreational spaces, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux between 1868 and 1896. It was inspired in large part by the parkland, boulevards, and squares of Paris, France. It is on the National Register of Historic Places as the Delaware Park–Front Park System and is maintained by the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy.
