The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team is selling a limited number of winter hats, known as “Tyler’s Toques,” to benefit the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. The Tyler Myers-themed toques also come with a Myers autographed player card and pin, as well as a one-year membership to the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy.
“I’m very excited to support the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy through the Tyler’s Toques program,” Myers said. “Our parks are an important part of Buffalo and I’m proud that the money raised from this program will help sustain them.”
Tyler’s Toques are officially sold out. Thank you for your support! The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is a not-for-profit, membership-based, community organization whose mission is to promote, preserve, restore, enhance, and maintain the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed parks and parkways in the Greater Buffalo area for current and future generations. The parks were designed by America's first landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted more than 145 years ago.
Olmsted designed parks in nearly every major city in the country. However, his work in Buffalo – the first park and parkway system designed and built in the U.S. - is considered his very best. Basic maintenance of the parks has been greatly improved with universal respect and admiration for the work that the Conservancy has accomplished over the past six years since the 2004 groundbreaking agreement with the City of Buffalo and Erie County.
Since that time, the Olmsted Parks Conservancy, now partnering with the city of Buffalo, has retained full responsibility for the management and maintenance of these green spaces which are listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places.
