“Clear Views to View”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We recently visited Rochester and took a ride through Cobbs Hill Park. There are wonderful spots for picnicking with suburb views of the city. It's a great place to just relax and watch the world go by-great for the kids to run and have fun.

“Great park, great location”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I grew up near Cobb's Hill and come back often. Nice tennis courts, a walk up to and around the Reservoir are always good exercise with great views.

“Great Park to Walk/Run or Hang Out.”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Cobbs Hill circles a reservoir and is popular with walkers and joggers as there is a wide concrete path encircling the reservoir. There is also a gentle hill for picnic-ers and those who just want to stretch out and enjoy a beautiful day. Many people also bring their dogs here to walk them.

“Nice place for softball, average for the rest”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Cobbs Hill Park is a great place for people who enjoy playing softball, because you can ALWAYS get onto an empty field. There are about six of them, and they are seldom all used except for on league nights.

The rest of the park is a bit on the mediocre side. There are a few basketball courts and a payground, all of which can be described as run-of-the-mill. There is also a nice pond across the street with a constantly-running water geyser in the middle. This area is popular for people walking their dogs, although not many other folks use this area. The entire park is also a bit on the loud side, as it is situated right next to Interstate Route 490. I wouldn't choose this park for a family picnic unless I couldn't get to a more quiet and scenic location.
