Long Description:
Formerly known as Centennial Park, LaSalle Park is located on a former dumping ground along the Niagara River. The city purchased the land from the state in 1911 for $1 million. Plans were finalized in 1931 to grade and seed the area for $340,000 after the city decided a permanent park was needed in the area.

The park features the LaSalle Park Performance Center ampitheatre that is home to an annual day-long concert by a local radio station and other performances. Plenty of baseball, softball, and soccer fields are used throughout the summer.
