Public Space Management

Public Space

Our district is as functional as it is beautiful. We maintain the Ellicott Street Linear Park and other properties where needed on and around the campus following sustainable landscape management practices. Our Operations Team also helps keep the area free of litter and helps make sure our sidewalks are clear of snow in the winter to create a walkable environment 365 days per year.

Ellicott Street Linear Park

Opened in 2013, the Ellicott Street Linear Park was a $8+ million collaboration between BNMC, our member organizations, and the City of Buffalo to create a 3,000’ long and 36’ wide linear park in the heart of the campus. Designed by nARCHITECTS, the park currently spans 6 blocks from Goodell Street to North Street, and features a variety of forking paths, landscaped islands and plazas, with unique pedestrian scale lighting and benches. The park is considered the spine of the district, connecting various hospitals, research centers and incubators, and provides needed green space in an urban environment for people to connect and enjoy.

Programming & Events

We host numerous outdoor programs throughout the year to bring people here, connect people, and make the district an enjoyable place to live, work and visit. Check out our Events page to see what’s coming up.

BNMC Public Safety Council

The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is one of the safest areas in the city, and we collaborate with numerous public safety agencies to ensure a safe and welcoming environment. Our Public Safety Council meets to share information, discuss any issues, and coordinate public safety initiatives.
