Reviewed October 14, 2012

Highland Park is full of all types of trees plants and flowers and always has something in bloom in spring fall and summer. Magnolia trees and lilacs in spring are beautiful. Nice short walking trails

“A Rochester landmark”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Great place for a stroll to get-away from it all. Lovely displays of unusual species of lilacs and other flowering shrubs. The Lilac Festival has grown to be a major attraction for young and old.

“Beautiful park & an ideal picnic spot”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

I love driving through the park at night when the lilacs are in bloom and are most fragrant but this is a pretty park any time of year. I saw a deer wandering through the lilac bushes in the middle of the day on our last visit.

“Beautiful park; outstanding lilac collection”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This park has acres and acres of beautiful lilacs; plenty of walking trails. It is a must see during May when lilacs are in full bloom. The 10 day festival highlights the lilacs and features a parade, several nights of outdoors concerts, etc.

“The smell of lilacs”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

One of our favorite places when it's time for lilacs. So many, so pretty and a pleasant walk...the pansy bed is a highlight as well with photographers all over the hill. A must see in the springtime in Rochester, NY
