“A Spring Day”

Great Park to go to and show what Rochester is all about!! Great place to take your friends and family that is out of state, where you can play ball or even take a stroll around the water .

“Great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013

If you live in Rochester or are just visiting, check out the view from Cobb's Hill. It's a great park to walk your dogs, play any games (softball, tennis, soccer, kickball). There are also trails off the back of the hill to wander through as well.

“Beautiful View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

My favorite spot in Cobbs Hill Park is the Reservoir. It's one of the highest spots in the area and you seem to be able to see forever. At the least you can see the Rochester skyline and the Anthony-Douglas Bridge a new addition to downtown. This is a favorite spot for walkers, runners and bikers. In the summer a great work out is riding your bike up the hill 3 or 4 times. That'll get anyone in shape, fast. The highlight of the spot is an old building I'm not sure if it's part of the Reservoir administration or what it's purpose is. The architecture is Greek revival and it makes for a perfect focal point to the top of this hill. The whole place is just enchanting and worth a visit.

“Nice place to go running”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013 via mobile

Went for a run here last summer. It was fun to run up the big hill and around the reservoir. Beautiful view of the city at night. Definitely a little dark at night, for some of the lamps are out, but i never felt unsafe.

“Drug Deals Galore”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

I work in a building across the street so some days I like to stroll to the park during my lunch hour. There hasn't been a visit there that I haven't seen some kind of drug deal going on. So sad.
