The Town of Grand Island has exceptional outdoor recreational opportunities. For families it's a great day out together; for others, it's a chance to get fit and healthy; for nature lovers, a walk gives them a chance to discover the landscape at their own pace.
We have wetlands, forests, waterfront trails, two state parks, and nearly 2,000 acres of permanently protected land. We have hiking trails, snowmobile trails, and kayaking launch facilities on the Niagara River.
The Town has created two exceptional trail systems: Scenic Woods and Nike Base Park. The Island benefits from the trails located in Beaver Island and Buckhorn Island State Parks and the WNY Land Conservancy's Margery Gallogly Nature Sanctuary.
The Town Parks Department maintains the town trail systems year-round. Current trails conditions are made available.
Our trail system does not allow motorized vehicles. Please note that Gallogly Nature Sanctuary does not allow dogs, however, Nike Base Trails and Scenic Woods Trail System, which are Town-owned, do allow dogs.
