All of our Rochester parks are similar in how they bring communities together, yet unique in their presentation and amenities. Some are as simple as grass, shade, and benches, while others are robust and expansive.
Many of the city’s parks have beginnings embedded in the city’s early history. Some were designed by (and later inspired by) notable landscape architects such as Frederick Law Olmsted and Lawrence Halprin.

Please follow the most current recommendations from the CDC and New York State for spending time away from your home.
