  1. Any list of handicap/wheelchair accessible playgrounds. I’m specifically in Hamburg but have a group of moms in wny looking.

  2. Mang has a toddler area and a big kid area. Separate spaces, which is great as ling as you don’t have both ages…
    Just north of kenmore ave. park sits between military and elmwood.

  3. Elma also has two playgrounds at Elma Primary on Rice Road and one at the Intermediate school on the main Iroquois Campus on Girdle Rd.

  4. All of the ones listed in Buffalo have links to google maps I believe. Hopefully, that will direct you to the right area. As far as Toddler specific, all I can say is what I’ve noticed in most parks there are toddler areas as well as play equipment for bigger kids. As far a school playgrounds, those can be hit or miss. In my experience the school playgrounds are geared more towards 5 and up. Have fun!

  5. Also looking for Toddler playgrounds in the area.live in North Buffalo but would travel for a good one.

  6. Hi Lindsay – sorry about that! My website moved to a new host in February and some of the links didn’t “connect” back properly after the move.

    Most (not all) will have toddler areas. (exceptions are the school playgrounds usually) Where do you live so I can better advise you?
