“Beautiful park!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This park has an area you can swim in for a fee and a lovely walking path right at the northern most point of Canandaigua Lake. The sailboats were out ,people kayaking, dogs being walked. There is a play ground for the children and many shelters for family outings. Lots of picnic tables facing the lake. It's also a fabulous place to watch 4th of July fireworks from. There's an ice cream shop just across the street and lots of restaurants near-by. Parking can be difficult to find a space on the weekend but there are no meters-free! I love this park!

“Walking distance from Main St.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Shop the great shops on Main St. (The Salty Dog is my favorite, great aquarium shop) and then walk right down to the gem of Canandaigua.

“Walk or Jog or Relax - Either Way - Enjoy the View!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Easy to get to - plenty of parking. If you just want to relax and enjoy the view, grab a bench. Be ready to say "hi" to lots of folks who will be walking by getting some exercise or just chatting and enjoying the day. Or take a walk yourself! Bring the kids to enjoy the modern playground area. Really pretty space at the head of the lake that should be a part of your day even if your just passing through Canandaigua.

“Beautiful 9 acres of scenic walkways”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We strolled through part of the grounds of this beautiful park yesterday, just taking in all the scenes of the water, plants and lilac bushes. A lot of people were out using this area, although it appears to be wide-open and uncrowded due to the linear fashion of the grounds. It is right next to the City Pier, so you can easily walk across there after your stroll down from the boats, and much of this park also hugs the northern shore of Canandaigua Lake.

Try bringing a lunch along with you, as it is worth the scenery. A great place to visit!

“Beautiful walk along the lake.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Go there almost everyday. There's a beach, playground, benches, everything a park should have. Love to sit and watch the sailboats.
