Stretch your legs and look across to Rochester's skyline. It's just a kilometer around the reservoir, so enjoy your stroll. Be sure to enjoy the 30's architecture of the granite gate house.

Cobbs Hill Park is a favorite from my childhood and still is. There are ball fields, lots of swing sets and jungle gyms, plenty of green grass for playing and the pond for winter ice skating.

I live close by and find the park to be a good place to enjoy a walk around the reservoir. The path around is about .70 of a mile. There is parking around the outside of road. No bathroom there up top which is unfortunate

Okay, so I admit that i still see Cobbs Hill through the eyes of a little girl visiting here and playing with my cousins. However, it's still beautiful and offers both a chance to be outdoors and some good views. We enjoyed the blast from...More
