Took my 5 and 3 year old grandkids there one morning. They were thrilled feeding the fish. Just bring quarters to buy fish food from the machines. This will be a regular trip this summer.

My young daugher (and I) really enjoy this fish hatchery. This is a gem in Powder Mills Park. She loves to feed the trout, even more when they splash her.

This is a beautiful part of Powder Mills Park. There are ponds around the Fish Hatchery with a blue heron keeping watch. There are also hiking trails and cabins.

I've not seen these in other cities or towns. Within this beautiful park are around twelve cement in-ground tanks where trout are grown and eventually released into the Irondequoit Creek. Fish food quarter-fed machines are near the tanks and you can feed the fish who...More

It never gets old coming to the hatchery to feed the fish. The tanks have little plaques to tell you the age of the fish and what type they are. It is such a fun and interactive experience. You can have a lot of fun...More
