Easy to get to - plenty of parking. If you just want to relax and enjoy the view, grab a bench. Be ready to say "hi" to lots of folks who will be walking by getting some exercise or just chatting and enjoying the day. Or take a walk yourself! Bring the kids to enjoy the modern playground area. Really pretty space at the head of the lake that should be a part of your day even if your just passing through Canandaigua.

We strolled through part of the grounds of this beautiful park yesterday, just taking in all the scenes of the water, plants and lilac bushes. A lot of people were out using this area, although it appears to be wide-open and uncrowded due to the linear fashion of the grounds. It is right next to the City Pier, so you can easily walk across there after your stroll down from the boats, and much of this park also hugs the northern shore of Canandaigua Lake.

Try bringing a lunch along with you, as it is worth the scenery. A great place to visit!

Go there almost everyday. There's a beach, playground, benches, everything a park should have. Love to sit and watch the sailboats.

Kershaw is a very scenic and serene area to just sit,relax and watch the water and all that goes with it.Watch the sun set, the boats that pass by and if you are a people watcher this is the perfect place and it is pet friendy.

Visiting the area from North Carolina. I lived in the fingerlakes during my childhood and it was so great to be back on the lake. The large rocks are still there and the park area is still beautiful. What a nice memory refresher to my childhood. If only Roseland was still there!!!
