Buffalo Rising: Buffalo Micro-Park Project

By Mark Scott


Buffalo, NY – They're called Micro-Parks -- a series of small parks that will be placed in abandoned areas of Buffalo's waterfront. One is already operating in LaSalle Park where dogs are allowed to roam free. And there's an ambitious proposal to locate a skate park under the Skyway.

WBFO's Mark Scott and Buffalo Rising's Newell Nussbaumer talk more about the Micro-Park concept with, Jay McCarthy, the person leading the effort.
