Expect the Unexpected! The whole family will enjoy beautiful poinsettias, vibrant colors and playful surprises this holiday season!
The conservatory and botanical gardens were created from the visions of extraordinary men. David F. Day, Frederick Law Olmsted, John F. Cowell, Frederick A. Lord and William A. Burnham of Lord & Burnham Co.. Each of these talented individuals contributed to the inception, design and success of the South Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
In the 1860s David F. Day, a Buffalo city attorney and judge, was charged with drawing up incorporation papers for the City of Buffalo’s Parks Commission. He was passionate about including zoological and botanical collections in the city of Buffalo and as Parks Commissioner in the late 1800s, he was instrumental in establishing these collections. He continued to support the south park conservatory project with great enthusiasm. http://www.buffalogardens.com
