Cobbs Hill Park in Rochester is a fun and beautiful park that has several distinct portions of the park set off for different purposes.

I only recently discovered the trails around here but this is a great, quiet place for a walk in the park or running on hills. They have tennis courts at the bottom and some newer shopping areas right across the street! Very runner friendly!

This is one of my favorite places in Rochester - The Cobbs Hill Reservoir. You can see the Rochester skyline from here .And the park itself is a great place for a picnic.

My family and friends go there at least weekly... More

Everyone knows about Cobbs Hill. The reservoir, the trails, the sheer beauty of the park is amazing. I have been going since I was a little girl. It's a great place for peaceful walks, family time and whatever else.

I would walk around the reservoir when I lived in Rochester. We took my son, wife, daughter and grandson there. The only thing I was disappointed about was the construction. We couldn't walk around this time.

This is the best spot in Rochester, NY for sports, sun bathing, sledding, walking and watching the sunsets. Execellent spot for photography too.
