Tinker Nature Park

Reviewed By UpstateNyGrandma11 - upstate ny

This park has family-friendly trails. Be aware that they do not allow dogs in the park. However, wild life is all around. We saw many geese and deer in close proximity to the trail as we walked. The highlight for children age 3-8 or so are the 22 fairy houses built into the trees at child's eye level as you progress along the path toward the playground and gazebo/pond. We had lots of fun finding them and my 7 year old granddaughter was thrilled to take a picture of each one as we discovered it. We were there on a 45 degree Sunday afternoon and saw about ten other people during our entire two hours there. It was very peaceful. You can go at your own pace. Bikes are not allowed but strollers and wheelchairs are and the main paths are readily accessible for either. Great picnic spots for warmer weather and plenty of benches to sit and watch the wildlife in the treed areas.

Mendon Ponds Park

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

Mendon Ponds Park is our favorite park in all of Monroe County. Hiking, walking the dog, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing, sledding, cross-country skiing, watching birds or the stars, picnicking, leaf peeping--this park has it all!! My husband and I love Mendon Ponds Park so much that we moved to be closer to it.

Veterans Memorial Park

Reviewed By JHanlon277 - Sand Springs, Oklahoma

As impressive as the memorial in D.C. the soldier walking into the wall is open to ones own impression of what it depicted. By the end of the tour,I had been taken back in my mind's eye to my time in Vietnam. This isn't just a memorial of the 280 young men who died in the war from Rochester, but a memorial to all who served in Vietnam.

My 6-year old loves the Museum of Play so we try to visit it once or twice a year. I always aim to visit during a week day when the museum is not so busy, but that is not always the case.

Wild Wings

Reviewed By rrepass - Honeoye Falls, New York

Wild Wings is a not-for-profit educational organization that houses and cares for permanently injured birds of prey or "raptors" which are unable to survive on their own in the wild any more.

The Wild Wings facility is located in Mendon Ponds Park near the intersection of Clover Street and Pond Road, next to the old Nature Center. Parking is available in the Nature Center parking lot. You enter the facility through a small gift shop, where 100% of the proceeds go to support the beautiful injured birds. (You can even buy seed to feed the Chickadees on the Songbird trail out in the main park area.)

Once inside the facility, you can appreciate the serene environment including gardens and the enclosures they have created through fund raising and volunteer work from groups like the Scouts, to make a forever home for the birds who have no where else to go. There are often docents around who will offer as much or as little information as you would like on the bird, or their resident North American bobcat, Tara. Some birds are occasionally off exhibit as they are taken to local schools for education and conservation presentations.

On many occasions we have had the opportunity to see some of the birds up close when one of the trained volunteers has one out of it's enclosure for socialization or education. During their special events there are often multiple birds to see in a way you never could anywhere else. My kids really enjoy walking around to see the birds, and sometimes finding them in the enclosure is the best part, it helps kids understand that animals don't always sit front and center waiting to be seen. The camouflage on some of the owls is amazing!

They do have special tours and events you can organize through their website: http://www.wildwingsinc.org/store.asp?pid=15036&catid=19794

Be sure to visit their website to check out current hours of operation. As one might expect, since it's run by volunteers they aren't open every day. There is no charge for this attraction, but a few dollars donation is received with very warm thanks.

Mount Hope Cemetery

Mount Hope, dedicated in 1838, is America's first municipal Victorian Cemetery. Set in a picturesque landscape shaped by retreating glaciers, the cemetery contains priceless pieces of art and rare horticultural specimens. It is the final resting place of many dignified and internationally known individuals, including Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, and is on the National Park Services National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom. Mount Hope is listed in the New York State Register of Historic Places and National Register of Historic Places as part of the Mt. Hope/Highland Preservation District, featuring 83 mausoleums, soaring Egyptian obelisks, a Florentine cast-iron fountain, two stone chapels in the Gothic Revival style, a Moorish gazebo, a Victorian Gothic gatehouse, and infinitely varied tombstones marking 350,000 graves across 196 acres.

Reviewed By Ontheroadsince64 - Talkeetna, Alaska

What a beautiful old cemetery, the first of this type, with winding roads and walking paths. The gravesites, statues and landscaping are all interesting, but the best part is the way people today are using it for walks, exercise (we saw a yoga class outside one building), and general enjoyment. Gravesites of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass are here, among others. The map could be better marked -- we accidentally drove down a lane that was non-motorized only. Without signs posted, or any indication on map, it was impossible to realize til we got to bottom of hill where posts preventing a vehicle from entering were located.

Brighton Sports Zone

Reviewed By Larry W - Rochester, New York

We have utilized the Brighton Sports Zone for the past 2-3 years for our daughters soccer practices, and have been very satisfied with the facility and all the fields. This is an old tennis club that was converted into a huge soccer practice facility. The "fields" are a form of astro-turf with a padded layer beneath the artificial grass, yielding a soft and resilient field that helps to prevent injuries to the young players. The parents have a comfortable balcony from which they can observe the practices, and also have access to vended beverages and snacks. The heated facility allows the teams to practice year-round, which enhances their skills.

This is a very nice facility that we are happy to use. I do recommend it for anyone looking to add a winter practice venue to their team's schedule.
