Wonderful place to take young kids . Fab wooden playground and Good walking paths . Nestled in a quiet residential area. Don’t miss the mushroom house on your way out on the right ! Look up ; it’s on stilts and trees .

This beautiful park right in the middle of Pittsford has it all. A flowing creek for spring fishing. The perfect hill for novice skiers. Daffodil fields. Trails for all levels into historic powder mills territory. Cabins for rent. And a dynamic fish hatchery.

We were looking for the ski jump that use to be there when we were kids - didn't find it but found other little trails, an old mill wheel, fish hatcheries and the Mushroom house on outskirts we hadn't seen in years.

We were visiting in the area and brought our little Bichon Bolognese dog here to stretch and excercise. We used the Trillum Trail which seemed to be popular among dog walkers, probably because it is an easy walk over mostly level terrain, which was good...More
