Reviewed August 20, 2012

The arboretum and Lamberton Conservatory are well worthwhile. Easy walk paths and plenty of parking on the street.

“Lilac Festival”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Tons of lilacs in bloom for this week long festival with live outdoor music which is free. There are tons of vendors for crafts, jewelry and the like. Beer is served but expensive. Saw Mashall Tucker Band one your and Susan Tadeski another. Very large and beautiful park, but the yearly Lilac Festival is it's main attraction. Google Lilac Festival AND Rochester, New York in April for the web site with schedule of events and bands.
