Schiller Park


This residental area circles around Schiller Park. Inside this small city park Scajaquada Creek has been channeled underground and continues west under the city to Forest Lawn Cemetery. Villa Maria College, a large Catholic school, dominates the eastern half of the neighborhood.

A local family business, Scharf's Schiller Park Restaurant, draws customers from all over the city of Buffalo for its authentic German cuisine and its famous Friday "fish-fry."
