We live near Highland, and have been many times. There is a great playground and a nature conservatory (costs extra) that is great for the kids. Other than during the lilac festival (which is beautiful and great for its own reasons) it is a generally peaceful and quiet place. Have gone on dates here with my husband, met up with my friends for a walk, and met other parents for playdates. Free parking in multiple spots, definitely recommend to anyone visiting Rochester.

My family and I always enjoy visiting Highland, in any season. It's a great place to enjoy a leisurely stroll, a brisk walk, run or picnic.The landscape is spectacular any season. Full of lilac brushes/trees, Highland Park is the home of the annual Lilac festival in early May. Shortly later, the Rhododendrons and Azaleas paths come alive. In summertime, we love the plays and concerts at Highland Park. Covered with snow in winter, Highland's rolling hills make a winter wonderland. Just behind the Park is the Highland Conservatory, a beautiful building and grounds all year round.

Great fun for all ages. Lots of food vendors and craft vendors to choose from. Went with one of my sons and his family so we stopped at the playground so my grandson could play.

Great place to stroll around. Sometimes they have festivals like the Lilac festival in May with arts and crafts, live music, children's activities, good food, smelling the lilacs etc.

Particularly beautiful when they lilacs are in bloom! The arboretum is lovely, but the park is just spectacular to walk and enjoy what Frederick Olmsted designed!
