When will the ring roads in Delaware and South parks reopen?
The City of Buffalo and Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy have begun a two-month long public survey to determine the future use of the ring roads in Delaware Park and South Park.
Vehicular traffic was banned from the ring roads after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020 to provide additional and expanded safe space for park goers.
There is one survey for each park. They can be found online on Olmsted's website. They can also be completed or dropped off in person Monday-Friday at the Delaware Park Parkside Lodge from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., the Tosh Collins Community Center in Cazenovia Park 2 p.m.-8 p.m. or the Division of Parks and Recreation Office, 505 City Hall, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Completed surveys will be accepted through the end of April, with a decision on the ring roads hoped for by Memorial Day.
