Description

Description
The inscription on plaque reads: "Delaware Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux as the principal public park within an overall system of parks, parkways and public spaces planned for the city of Buffalo between 1868 & 1898. The park system also included the "Parade" (now Martin Luther King Park), Front, Riverside, Cazenovia and South Parks in addition to the system of connecting parkways. These parks and parkways are listed on the National Register of Historic Places." The plaque contains an image-in-relief of the general plan for Delaware Park Lake from 1899.
