Penfield is a town in Monroe County, New York, United States. The population was 36,242 at the 2010 census.The town was incorporated in 1810 by the proprietor, Daniel Penfield, who purchased the town lands in 1795 and moved to the area in 1809. His house still resides at 1784 Penfield Road. Penfield is a suburb of Rochester, New York. The town's motto is "A Town of Planned Progress".GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 37.9sqmi, of which 37.5sqmi is land and 0.4sqmi (1.11%) is water. Penfield is surrounded in all four directions by neighboring towns.

Athletic Fields Abraham Lincoln Park Channing H Philbrick Park Ellison Park Greenwood Park Harris Whalen Park Heritage Park Lasalle's Landing Park Lucien Morin Park Rothfuss Park Schaufelberger Park Sherwood Fields Park Veteran's Memorial Park Nearly two million years ago, Penfield's topography was formed by melting glaciers. The same forces that created the Finger Lakes helped develop interesting terrain in and around Ellison Park. These glacial ice melt carvings left fertile lands which today is used in farming (and from the late 20th century to the present, housing developments). The soil is rich for farming certain types of apples, cherries, plums, peaches, and pears.
