Replica canal attractions taking shape in Buffalo


BUFFALO, New York — A new canal-themed water attraction is taking shape in Buffalo.

The Buffalo News reports ( ) that replica canals were being test-filled this past week at Canalside. The $20.5 million project is scheduled to be completed by this fall.

The canals will serve as reflecting pools in the summer and skating rinks in the winter.

Officials say that historically accurate bridges are under construction and will soon be installed over the canals. They were dug at the former site of an indoor arena where the Buffalo Sabres played.
