“Nice lasor show”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Plenty of the younger crowd hang out in the trendy bars. There is outdoor concerts in summer and a variety of food and drink establishments. Downton Rochester. Nice view of the River Falls

“Great place to hang out on a nice day”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We just visited the Genesee Brewery's beer house and loved it. I tried a flight of beer and enjoyed all four that I tasted. They have outdoor seating that looks out over the falls. The menu is a little basic, but we tried the hot pretzels and they were delicious.

“City Center”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

If this site were not in downtown Rochester, it would be a tourist attraction with crowds. Falls are spectacular, light shows are great, Rochester mill history is interesting, and walking bridge over the Genesee River is great. Restaurants come and go because of location.

“Cool Urban waterfall”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

How cool to have a waterfall in downtown. Bridge across the river is very scenic. Not really a park area though. Genessee brewhouse is on the east side of the bridge and is great. High falls neighborhood has some nice historic adaptively reused wear houses
