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.

If you haven't gone here on a sunny day in Rochester don't know what you're missing. Beautiful skies, with a great tree line view of Downtown Rochester make it a great place for a run or walk.

I utilized this park for a beautiful walk over the lunch hour today. The snow formed a gorgeous "re-modeling" surface over everything, and it was obvious that many people had been walking and skiing across the open ball fields as well as down the hill leading from the reservoir on top. The only problem I saw was that there were... More

Another of ROC's secrets. Once around the reservoir is approximately 1/2 mile around the top...so it makes for great walking/running. The panoramic views of the Downtown skyline are breath taking. The hill makes for amazing sledding in the winter time...and around the bottom...has baseball diamonds with lights for the nighttime. Great place to throw the frisbee...and walk the dog.

Visited this park in the wintertime after a wonderful snowfall. Great for sledding and cross country skiing. A must for the adventurous family.

When I lived in Rochester I loved to walk around the reservoir. During the winter Cobbs Hill along with Ellison Park were the top sledding spots in Rochester. In the summer you can pack a lunch and picnic under one of the many beautiful trees.

In the winter, there is big outdoor public rink on the lower part of the park. Plenty of room to get your skate on.....

While not a very big Park, it has a reservoir that you can walk around & see the whole City. A great place to see 4th on July fireworks because you can see all the towns from up there. Has a great playground for children & also has a litle fising pond for the kids. You will love it!!

I love Cobbs Hill. Great area to walk and play. Baseball fields, basketball and nature walks are among the things to do there. I love the wide open areas to run and play in.
