For more than 40 years, Charles E. Burchfield lived and painted in Gardenville, an area located in the northern end of the town of West Seneca.  This area is now home to our center, situated on 29 acres of nature trails and woods, wild and cultivated gardens, alongside the banks of the scenic Buffalo Creek.

Today, people of all ages visit the gallery and grounds of our center to experience art and nature at its best.  Adult and children's classes and activities, gallery exhibitions, festivals and special events means there's something for everyone at our center.

Zero negatives except this place can get swamped fast! They have two playgrounds; one for the little little ones and then one for the more advanced. The trails are shaded in most areas and long which we love. The water access is an added bonus, and the trees and flowers are a sight to see. Be cautious of the Poison ivy...there are signs attempting to warn you of it's where abouts, and what it looks like which is great. The art outside is incredible and fun.

I love this place, its so much more then a park. They have such great events and live music. You right in the water too. I love the charming little trails, its rustic beauty, native history and the friendly community.

I went for the art. Which was very sparing. Mostly white trash swimming in the sewer creek. Smelled of newports and budweiser. It was decent
