Niagara County's Krull Park is a beautiful recreational complex with excellent views and access to Lake Ontario. On a hot summer day, the park is packed with families laughing and playing, the beach was full of swimmers, playing fields echoed with cheering fans, and a motorcycle charity ride was passing by. Even with all the activity, the park is relaxing and a pleasure to explore.
The 325 acre park had its beginnings in the late 19th century when lakeside tourism was an important revenue stream for the railroad industry. The section of the park north of Main Street is often referred to as Olcott Beach, and is a shaded mix of walkways, pavilions, picnic tables and restrooms. The sandy swimming beach is located at the park.
South of Olcott Beach is the family recreation portion of the park, where numerous small shelters host family parties. You can also bring your little ones to play on our two playgrounds. You will also find basketball and tennis courts alongside the park road. For those that need peace and quiet, numerous groves in this section offer a peaceful spot to sit and read and relax in the shade.
The massive southeast portion of the park is where all the sport and playing fields are located. Amateur league teams often play here, but most of the time you can find an open field. Aside from the baseball diamonds and soccer fields, this park also has a designated model airplane field and even horseshoe pits. In winter, the park still attracts visitors for cross-country skiing, ice-skating (in two locations), and comfort them with a warming house and vending machines. In fact there are so many things to do in Krull Park year-round, we consider it one of the best family parks to visit in Western New York.
