Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk


Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk


The Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk began in 2001 with 24 gardens to showcase the neighborhoods surrounding the University at Buffalo South Campus, including University Heights, Buffalo, Eggertsville and Amherst. Samuel P. Capen was the first full-time, salaried Chancellor of the University of Buffalo.


Now in its 9th year, the Garden Walk is a free self-guided tour of more than 60 private gardens and carefully nurtured public spaces. The Capen Garden Walk is designed to encourage neighborhood beautification and to build community among neighbors.
