Since its formal opening on July 25, 1974, Artpark has successfully forged a new role for the arts in leisure. Artpark is unique as a public park and as a space for art. As one of North America’s most innovative summer venues, Artpark offers a full spectrum of engaging entertainment; from productions of Broadway musicals, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra performances and concerts in the Mainstage Theater to award-winning concert series featuring popular rock and pop performers in the Outdoor Amphitheater.

Earl W. Brydges Artpark is dedicated to presenting the finest in performing and visual arts programs; including world-class amphitheater rock and pop concerts, interactive public art installations, outdoor festivals, gallery exhibits, art and theatre workshops, summer camps and more. Please visit artpark.net for full summer calendar of events. The park is also home to a variety of historic sites and scenic nature trails. Lower Landing Archeological District is a key point in the Colonial Niagara Historic District.

The park has picnic facilities, hiking and cross-country skiing, and access to fishing. The upper Artpark Gorge Trail offers a gradual climb to the top where it meets up with the rim trail that crosses the power plant to Devil’s Hole State Park. The lower River’s Edge Trail provides access to fishing by two staircases. Both trails start at the small parking area at the upper end of the park.
