Orchard Park Reviews

Orchard Park is so lovely. We have great local boutiques, restaurants from casual to formal, bakeries and a very hip new smoothie place called green eats. Green lake is the perfect place for a scenic stroll near water. Chestnut Ridge Park has the best view of the city, a challenging disc golf course and beautiful hiking trails. Orchard Park doesn't need to change at all.

Overall, Orchard Park is a great little town. The people are mostly nice (though a bit snooty I would say), and there is plenty to do. Like most of western New York however, most of the population here is TERRIBLE at driving an any sort of adverse weather condition.
Orchard park is pleasant suburb outside of Buffalo. The town is very family friendly with an abundance of upper-middle class neighborhood developments. I never feel unsafe walking around the town of Orchard Park. There are some good places to get food including Mangia's, Spot Coffee, Taffy's, and Duff's. The public school system is top quality.
