Take a leisurely stroll around the lake located near downtown Rochester. Here you are sure to see Canadian Geese all over the place. Rochester is part of their migration trail and has a ton of these birds in the park near the lake. You can choose to rent peddle boats or canoes.

First to Review

This is one of the major parks in Rochester, with a lot of different events throughout the year, and fireworks for the Fourth of July. It's a man-made lake, and not very large, but there is a walking/running trail around the lake, a playground, etc. You can find bike rentals or paddle boat/canoe/kayak rentals as well. This used to be a great place to go and feed the Canadian geese, but the city decided to plant weeds around the edge of the lake to keep the geese away, so it's not as impressive as it used to be. Rochester and Silver Lake park is known for the fact that a subspecies of Canadian goose (the giant Canadian goose) was at one time believed to be extinct until it was found to be living year-round here.
