Can someone in/around Buffalo, NY help me?

I need to pick a park for our rehearsal dinner, but I'm not from there and I won't be around again until the wedding on August 18. Our hotel is across from the airport and the wedding itself is in Williamsville.  We'll have lots of kids so I was hoping for a pavillion that is near a playground.  


Can anyone help with suggestions of parks and caterers? We're looking for something really laid back: chicken, macaroni and cheese, salads...


Thanks in advance ladies.

Here is a great caterer...my cousin's best friend just got married last month and they used them, and everyone loved the food.

I found a few parks around the Williamsville area (since you are going to be in that area). 



  • Island Park - Located behind Town Hall, this park is the scene of many Village functions including Old Home Days, the Savor-the-Flavor/Taste of Williamsville Food Festival, Music in the Park Series and Christmas Caroling in the Pines. It contains swings, slides, climbing apparatus, barbecue grills and a two foot wading pool. There are two picnic shelters (the large pavilion and small picnic gazebo) which may be rented by area residents with preference being given to those residents residing in the Village of Williamsville. For information on rental, contact Village Hall at 632-4120.



  • Glen Park - Located near picturesque Glen Falls, Glen Park is jointly owned by the Village of Williamsville and the Town of Amherst. It was built in 1976 with funds obtained from a federal grant and includes many interconnecting ponds which are now home for many ducks. Popular activities in this walking park include taking wedding pictures, fishing and nature walks.



  • Garrison Park - Located at Garrison Road, S. Ellicott Street and Park Drive, it is equipped with a wading pool that is 18" deep, swings, slides and a climbing apparatus. There is a small gazebo located in the park which can be enjoyed by Village residents.



  • South Long Street Park- This beautiful Village park located on S. Long St. near Village Square Lane has seen some significant improvements over the past several years!  Amenities include a softball diamond that was greatly improved in 2010 in cooperation with the Amherst Girls Softball League, a soccer field with nets supplied via a cooperative agreement with the Amherst Soccer Association, a basketball court, tennis courts, children’s play pieces, and a recently installed gazebo.  


Here is the website so you can download an application - Do you have any family still there because I believe all the state/city parks are for residents, although I am not 100% sure.
