Every building (and garden) has a story...


Garden Walk Buffalo has been welcoming garden enthusiasts–from around the country–into gardens since 1995. 2016 marks the second year of collaboration between the Buffalo Architecture Foundation (BAF) and Garden Walk.

As part of its Building Stories Program, Garden Walk Buffalo visitors will be able to hear select properties’ Building (or Garden) Story.  By scanning the QR Codes on the signage along the tour, visitors will gain an insiders perspective to these amazing and unique spaces.

The stories collected from Garden Walk Buffalo 2015 are available on the Buffalo Architecture Foundation website.
