I enjoy walking the reservoir area with wonderful views of the city. There area also playing fields in the park and an area used for ice skating in winter.

“Decent, would not go out of my way to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2012

Cobbs Hill houses one of the cities water supply reservoirs at it's peak. There are flat fields at the base and baseball diamonds for the sport of the season. In the winter it is known as one of the areas more dangerous sledding locations. Near the playground that is equipped with basketball courts and a public restroom there is a pond which attracts area ducks and geese. This is a decent park if yu live in the area, would I drive a distance or put it on the itinerary if in Rochester, NY for a short say, sorry but no.

“Clear Views to View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

We recently visited Rochester and took a ride through Cobbs Hill Park. There are wonderful spots for picnicking with suburb views of the city. It's a great place to just relax and watch the world go by-great for the kids to run and have fun.

“Great park, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

I grew up near Cobb's Hill and come back often. Nice tennis courts, a walk up to and around the Reservoir are always good exercise with great views.
