  • Came for the Lilac Festival and the park was fantastic. Flowers: It was a dreary and cold weekend we came on but many of the flowers were still in bloom. They had magnolias, lilacs, cherry blossoms and many other flowers and trees. Great variety, lovely fragrances and awesome place to take photos. Trail: You can follow the trial and we spent about an hour and a half walking and taking pictures. Festivals are held there so if you happen to come during one like us, you could probably spend a few hours there. Will definitely come back!
  • Highland Park is an amazing retreat located on the Rochester Brighton boarder. Surrounded by the South Wedge, College Town, and a bit of Brighton, it's a peaceful place one can go and get away from city living.
  • Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, this is one of the hidden gems of Rochester, arguably the best park in the city. great views, fairly quiet, lots of foliage.
  • Gorgeous place! If you're in Rochester, I highly recommend visiting Highland Park. It's obviously best there during Spring and Autumn. Beautiful trees and flowers, with benches dedicated to various peoples' memories and a children's play area as well. Perfect for walks, picnics and photography!
  • I live around Highland park a beautiful place to visit with family and friends and for walks..
