Re: Western NY Meet Up: Location?

Chama, Rafi and I went over to Grand Island after work yesterday. Unfortunately it was late and I only made it to one of the parks in daylight. It has no facilities and there were very few people. The only people there were fishing. I have been there before and there are never very many people. I've always had the dogs off leash there but if your dog isn't off leash trained you wouldn't want to do that b/c there is water on side and woods on the other.

I think it would be great for a meet up. There is some green space where the dogs could play and we can walk pretty far along the river. The other park is bigger and has a lot more traffic. There is a lot of green space there. I went in the back way which is right across the river from an oil refinery and it STUNK!!!!!!!!! I will try to get over there this week during the day and go in the main entrance to see if that is less smelly.

Here are pics from Buckhorn State Park:

The entrance. The road is behind me:

The place I posted is classified as a preserve and doesn't list hunting.
