Broderick Park

Buffalo, New York

With construction to the Ferry St. Lift Bridge completed, Broderick Park is once again easily accessible. The park is situated at the South end of Unity Island between the Niagara River and the Black Rock Canal. A wonderful place to birdwatch, watch the sunset, or enjoy a stroll along Bird Island Pier under the Peace Bridge toward downtown Buffalo. There are picnic tables, benches and public use grills for guests to enjoy. A new snack hut serving ice cream, french fries and other snacks is now open. Flush toilets are now available for use.

Visitors should be aware of multiple permitted sewage outfalls in the Black Rock Canal and Niagara River.

The City of Buffalo declares that NO SWIMMING ALLOWED in any body of water, except for designated pools with lifeguard staff on duty. However, people are frequently observed swimming from the pier.

Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper is a community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and connecting people to the water. We do this by cleaning up pollution, restoring fish and wildlife habitat, creating public access and enhancing educational opportunities.

During the summer months Waterkeeper staff works with high schools students who are a part of our Young Environmental Leaders Program (YELP). For more information about this program visit our website: http://bnwaterkeeper.org/yelp/

Waterkeeper and YELP students collect water samples from several public access locations within the city limits of Buffalo, NY. These are locations where the public often makes contact with the water either through swimming, kayaking or boating. These locations are also near combined sewage overflow (CSO) outfalls.

Sites are monitored once a week on Mondays in July and August. Samples will be processed in house using Coliscan Easygel. Results are typically available after 48 hours.

These locations are given a "Green" when a single sample is below 235 E. coli / 100 mL.

These locations are posted "Red" when a single sample exceeds 235 E. coli / 100 mL.

A location may also be posted "Grey" to indicate that water quality information is too old (more than 7 days old) to be considered current, or that info is unavailable, or unreliable (often due to changes in weather).

Waterkeeper also tests basic water quality parameters as part of their Citizen Science Program, Riverwatch, from May through November. To learn more or to view the most recent water quality report visit our website: http://bnwaterkeeper.org/riverwatch/
