My family started walking around the reservoir when I was a kid. I’m in my late 60’s now and every time I visit The Roch I make a point of coming here. Winter or summer it’s a special place.

I love running here during the summer. One lap around is about .7 miles so I am able to keep track of my distance like that. It is great to bring my dog too.

We went for an early evening walk and there were many people also walking around the reservoir or enjoying other parts of the park. The walk around the reservoir is just under a mile.

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.
