BUFFALO -- The public will have the chance tonight to see designs for landscaping, signage and other improvements to a recreational path that winds behind the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society Museum and along Scajaquada Creek.
The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy will unveil the latest designs for the "Jesse Kregal Pathway" improvement project during a public meeting from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Marcy Casino, 199 Lincoln Parkway.
Tonight's meeting is aimed at gathering community input for the project.
The $1.2 million project, previously called the Scajaquada Creekside Trail project, is funded through Niagara River Greenway funds. The Greenway funds are part of a settlement with the New York Power Authority for the relicensing of the Niagara Power Project.
Preliminary plans unveiled last month called for a refurbished Japanese Garden near Mirror Lake, new playground and picnic area near Peter Street and new signs and landscaping along the 1.8-mile Jesse Kregal Pathway, among other upgrades.
