Reviewed 8 August 2014

Well maintained, romantic, beautiful hilly park with nice paths, benches, etc. Surrounding neighborhood is a gem as well. Could have better public amenities.

We missed the lilacs but the park is still beautiful to walk in. Been away for 40 plus years but the beauty of the place is great!

“Huge park great for hiking or biking”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

This is a very large park and one that I've visited many times seeing I'm from rochester, ny. Every year they have the lilac festival with tons of vendors. During the rest of the year it's great for hiking or riding your bike.

“Nice place for a stroll.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The park provides a great place for a relaxed stroll. Check out the Lamberton Conservatory and the reservoir. The view of the surrounding area from the top of the park is also very nice.
