Brighton Town Park

Brighton Town Park

Brighton Town Park is surprisingly serene, despite being bordered on one side by office buildings and across the pond by a major express way interchange.

Located on Westfall, it is just down the street from the Brickyard Trail, and around the corner from Meridian Center Park.

Debi Bower is the founder and creative director of and author of the award-winning book Day Trips Around Rochester, New York.

People often ask me if I get free access to places while exploring. The answer is no unless I’m invited to previews or granted behind-the-scenes access as part of my media role. Generally, I don’t mention my project, Day Trips Around Rochester, NY, because I want the same experience you would have. I create and share content simply because it brings me joy. I would appreciate your support—a cup of coffee or two to help fuel future field trips—if you have found valuable information here that has helped you explore the Rochester area.
