Tim Russert grew up in nearby South Buffalo and was one of the city's biggest supporters. He loved his hometown sports teams, especially the Bills, and the great people who lived here. After leaving Buffalo, he became famous as host of NBC's "Meet the Press". Even though he lived in Washington DC, he made frequent trips back home to see his family and friends. His unexpected death on June 13 brought great sadness to the people of Buffalo. The park was host to a candlelight vigil in his memory on June 15, and flowers, flags, and other memories have been placed near the park sign.
Tim Russert Park is located just outside the boundaries of South Buffalo in West Seneca. It is a newer park, consisting of a large open grass area. Two picnic pavilions are located along the road at either end of the park. Both have two tables and barbecue grills. The paved path that circles the park is popular with joggers.
