“Gross ”
Review of Silver Lake

Silver Lake
Ranked #9 of 47 things to do in Rochester
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 October 2017 via mobile

I used to really like walking around Silver Lake. Not anymore. All the tall weeds planted on thee shoreline keep you from seeing the water and enjoying the view. And the goose poop on the trail is gross. Maybe our great Mayor Ardell should focus on fixing up what our city already has instead of adding useless junk to the downtown where no citizens go and trying to force the Mom and Pop businesses out.

Silver Lake is a beautiful place to go. There are a ton of geese and ducks and they are hilarious! Bring some bread along so you can feed them... The views are nice, the atmosphere is calm, it's a great place to come if you need some time alone, want to take a walk, or even to let the kids play... a must-see in Rochester!

Nice place to take a leisurely walk not far from downtown. Just walk some of the walk ways on the back side of the lake where it is nice and quiet. LOTS of migrating birds to observe in the fall.

Silver Lake is a nice place to take a stroll, see some ducks and geese, watch some birds and get some fresh air. The walking/biking path goes completely around the lake and makes a nice walk for people and dogs and is a good place to jog.

Always an amazing place to stop for a stroll around the park, feed the geese or just relax. Wear comfortable and older tennis shoes as all these birds leave behind a lot of waste. The restrooms need a update and good cleaning.
