Stretch your legs and look across to Rochester's skyline. It's just a kilometer around the reservoir, so enjoy your stroll. Be sure to enjoy the 30's architecture of the granite gate house.

I have walked around the reservoir many times. The only reason it might interest a tourist is the fact that it has the best view of downtown Rochester for photographers looking southwest from a spot near the road around the reservoir.

Cobbs Hill Park is a favorite from my childhood and still is. There are ball fields, lots of swing sets and jungle gyms, plenty of green grass for playing and the pond for winter ice skating.

I live close by and find the park to be a good place to enjoy a walk around the reservoir. The path around is about .70 of a mile. There is parking around the outside of road. No bathroom there up top which is unfortunate
