The storied Scajaquada Creek provides the setting for some of the most pivotal moments in Buffalo’s history.  Learn about the long and varied history of those who worked and lived on its shores, and the neighborhoods and industries that thrived due to their proximity to it. Scajaquada Creek also plays an essential role in creating the water features of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Delaware Park. Hear about the origin of the Creek’s name, its place in the War of 1812, its naval history, the former shipyard, and current efforts to improve its Pathway, revitalize the area, and remediate the waterway.

Meet at the Scajaquada Creek Trail entrance on the west side of the parking lot of Wegmans at 601 Amherst Street, Buffalo, NY 14207.
