I have lived in Rochester my whole life, with my childhood years spent in West Irondequoit, and I never knew this hidden sidewalk was here.
Finding Rochester’s Secret Hidden Sidewalk
From Ontario Beach Park in Charlotte, head west on Beach Ave. Across from Clematis St. and Cloverdale St. are the two entrances to the sidewalk, which is open to the public. My husband and I parked at Abbots Custard near Ontario Beach Park, grabbed a cone and walked to the entrance from there.
The beautiful lawns and gardens along the sidewalk are privately owned; only the path is public.
Walking east, you can see the pier in the distance.
