Downtown Riverfront Tour

20 Stops
Duration: 02:30:00
Distance: 3218

Rochester was born from the Genesee waters. This audio guided walking tour, narrated by Howard Decker, helps you rediscover the Genesee riverfront in the downtown Rochester. As you tour along, you’ll hear the history of this area, see ideas for revitalizing some of the very spots you’re standing on, and explore completed projects that were once just a vision.

The tour begins at Corn Hill Landing Park and heads north along the river. You’ll cross several bridges, following the flow of the mighty Genesee. In a few places, there’s no public access to the river. We’ll help you imagine what the riverfront could become if these barriers are removed.

Many of these ideas, and some of the renderings you’ll see, were developed by the “ROC the Riverway” project, sponsored by the City of Rochester.
