      Set amid bustling suburbs, Buffalo Creek is a quiet place to relax and recreate with nature. Its wide open spaces are safe, clean and easy to explore. Please keep dogs leashed and on trails at all times, and pick up after them. Learn about our off-leash Dog Parks (permit required).

      This expansive 408-acre preserve offers 5.5 miles of gravel trails for walking, biking and cross-country skiing. Trails run through open areas within the preserve, crossing several creeks, skirting the reservoir and traversing restored prairie. Fishing is allowed in the reservoir, which plays a major role in area flood control. Compared to our other preserves, Buffalo Creek has the highest number of people (nearly 139,000) living within a 10-minute drive of its entrance.
