“It Still Impresses”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

The old Silver Lake was a cesspool. With the Corps of Engineers flood control and removal of old appliances in the water, and management of the geese, the park has had a resurgence. It always had a cliental with it location to the municipal pool and family friendly picnic sites. It is now cleaner and more environmently friendly.

“Pretty lake, lots of Geese!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Pretty lake right in the city where you can walk, bike, picnic. They have rentals in the summer to boat or bike around the lake. There are lots of beautiful Canadian Geese, however, watch your step!!

“Fun place to feed geese and ducks”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

If you know of anyone who grew up feeding ducks, this is the place to reminisce - with many friendly gees and ducks eager to take a piece of bread or other appropriate food.

“A great walk around the lake”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Silver Lake is a great place to walk around and relax. Safe neighborhood to be in. Stop and feed the ducks and geese. Rent a little boat and paddle around the lake. Very close to downtown Rochester for clinic visitors to get away from the downtown sceen!
