Riverside Park (stadium)

Riverside Park is a former baseball ground located in Buffalo, New York, USA. The ground was home to the Buffalo Bisons baseball club of the National League from 1878 to 1883.

Located on a block bounded by Fargo Avenue (southwest); Rhode Island Street (northwest); West Avenue (northeast); and Vermont Street (southeast); Riverside Park was the first ballpark to be used by the major league Bisons. The stadium was demolished at the request of its owner, Alexander Culbert, who wanted to redevelop the property. The Bisons moved to Olympic Park for its remaining seasons. The rectangular block is today part of the residential neighborhood of Prospect Hill.
