Como Lake Park is a 534acre park in Erie County, in the U.S. state of New York. The park is located along the banks of Cayuga Creek in both the village and town of Lancaster, approximately east of the city of Buffalo. It is operated by the Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry. Access is free and it is open to the public year-round.
Como Lake Park, named after the Lake Como tourist resort in Italy, was originally established by the village of Lancaster in 1923 and acquired by Erie County in 1926 as the result of a special village election. The park at that time was 120acre in size, and grew to its current 534acre extent through land acquisitions in the years that followed. Many of the park's facilities and stone structures were built or improved by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s.
The park originally featured a small zoo and a 220yard toboggan run. Both of these attractions have since been removed.
Como Lake Park features a 4.5acre man-made lake with a small lighthouse. The park includes nature trails, 62 picnic shelters, a disc golf course, a soccer field, four tennis courts and two basketball courts. During the winter, the park features of trails and unplowed roads suitable for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, two free ice-skating rinks, and a sledding hill.

  • The lake I have visited and fished at for years has FINALLY been drained, cleaned out and refilled. Great work. I will be back in the Summer.  more »
  • This is the best park in close proximity to the Buffalo area. I love Akron too, but it's a bit of a drive. Como park is a very natural setting. Love the creek that winds through. Great place to walk.....  more »
  • A great place for a relaxing afternoon— even on sunny, hot days. Plenty of shade to relax in and water to dip your feet in if you get too warm. Family friendly and a great place to take homecoming or wedding pictures!
  • Getting better and better. The maintenance of the grounds, shelters and additional playground equipment. Nice place for families. Grew up skating on the ice rink and sliding down the sled hill. Great memories.
