Ohio Street Boat Launch – The Ohio Street Boat Launch site is located on Ohio Street and the right side of the Buffalo River, 1.5 miles upstream of the river’s mouth and between Michigan Street and South Street in Buffalo, NY. The site is bound to the north and south by old industrial properties, to the east by Ohio Street, and to the west by the river. NYSDEC maintains this site for hand launching of canoes and kayaks along the Buffalo Urban Canoe Trail. It is also an important component of the Ohio Street revival, and is the site of a recent Complete Streets project carried out by the City of Buffalo.
