The City of Tonawanda is located along the picturesque Niagara River and Erie Canal, along the route between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, New York. Our miles of waterfront parks offer spectacular views from Niawanda and Gateway Parks that bring visitors to our shores for the many summer activities we have to offer.

Tune to radio station WQFJ980 at 1670 AM the Tonawanda Information Station for City of Tonawanda.
