Corn Hill Landing Park is nestled along the northeast edge of Corn Hill. Originally known as the Third Ward, this is one of Rochester's most historic and diverse neighborhoods. The public realm here is shared, by a diverse group of people, who may be enjoying a walk or bike ride, exercising, dining, or simply relaxing.
This promenade along the river provides a wonderful view of downtown Rochester. It was developed in 2007, when an old industrial site was converted into a mixed-use development featuring public spaces, along with apartments, restaurants, and retail stores.
The park features seating areas and a large sculpture. It’s also a trailhead for the popular Genesee Riverway Trail, which is a National Recreation Trail. The park often serves as a starting point, or a resting point, for a bike ride, run, or stroll along the river.
In 2022, improvements to the west river wall were completed. The original wall, constructed in 1918, was crumbling and no longer provided flood protection. The improvements restored this protection to nearby residents, while enlarging the park and improving the river views along the trail.
