  • The park is absolutely beautiful when it was in bloom for spring. All the trees, flowers, and bushes were so beautiful. It was amazing to bring our dog for a nice spring walk through the park.  more »
  • We didn't have time to wander the whole park, but we loved seeing the plants and wildlife in the arboretum!  more »
  • Very nice park. The park itself is huge, it has tons of trails that are very well kept. There's a playground for kids that is made of wood. Overall loved my trip there will return there anytime I can.
  • Beautiful park, from the lilac festival to just a visit to the reservoir, this park provides a nice place to slow down and recharge, get in a quick run, or walk the pup. The Highland Bowl, college town, and the mount hope cemetery are all a quick walk away. The Veterans Memorial is exceptionally done and shows the reverence, patriotism and creativity fitting Rochester and her people. If you're new to the area, just visiting, or have lived here for some time, this is a great place to spend some time.
