The Riverline project intended to transform the former DL&W rail corridor into a 1.5-mile urban nature trail along the Buffalo River recently received national attention when it became part of the High Line Network.
The Riverline will be an iconic, innovative, and inspiring nature trail and greenway right in the heart of Buffalo.
The Riverline will connect entire communities to nature, to the waterfront, and to each other. There is an incredible emerging trail system throughout the city of Buffalo, the region, and the entire State of New York—on land and in the water—The Riverline will be part of that network.
This project will be a world-class model for equitable development, ensuring that the communities surrounding the area benefit from it. When complete, The Riverline will celebrate Buffalo’s history, incredible natural wonders, and amazing people. It will be a catalyst for Buffalo’s renaissance.
