You can walk to the Erie Canal path and then stroll or run over to this park with pretty bridges, playgrounds, and lots of space to run or play.

Great park in the city with a public golf course and trails all over. It is also runs along the river next to the University of Rochester campus.

It's right next door! Genesee Valley Park has tons of bike trails, connects to the canal path, the Leigh High Valley Trail, and the Genesee Riverway Trail. This is also a great place to fly a kite, RC Plane, or watch commercial and private planes fly overhead. Along with Highland and Seneca…

“This is Rochester's only zoo. It is a wonderful zoo and they have made many improvements over the last couple of years. Just behind the zoo is Seneca park which is great for pond fishing, running or walking on a nice trail.”

“It's going to sound weird, but this Rochester staple is must have! The "GARBAGE PLATE" isn't appealing by name, but it's amazing once you take a bite! At first you will stumble upon this culinary creation after a late night on the town, when nothing else is open... but then you will start eating it for regular meals like lunch and dinner. What is it?! Standard garbage plates will be served over potatoes and mac salad with your choice of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, chicken fingers, or sausage, all smothered in onions and "hot sauce" which in Rochester is a spicy, ground beef sauce and is good on just about everything. (Try it on eggs!) ”

“Located near Irondequoit Bay, Tryon Park primarily consists of ungroomed trails, popular with hikers and mountain bikers. It offers 4 marked trails, and is colocated with Ellison Park, Lucien Moran Park (good for bird watching), Abraham Lincoln Park (best for kids) and Irondequoit Bay Park (additional trails).”
