LaSalle Park, a 77-acre park is Buffalo’s largest waterfront park and located where the mouth of the Niagara River meets Lake Erie.

On the northern edge of LaSalle Park is the historic Colonel Francis G. Ward Pumping Station, a colossal five-story building constructed during the early 1900s. The station houses several electric pumps delivering water to Buffalo and the surrounding areas.
