Highland Park’s Trees and the Rochester Public Market

  • 21 Oct 2017
  • 9:30 AM
  • Rochester, NY


Registration is closed

Let’s aim to meet at Highland Park in Rochester, NY - Look for us in front of the Lamberton Conservatory. (180 Reservoir Ave., Rochester 14620) at 9:30 AM.  I will give you an overview of the park, its designer, Frederick Law Olmstead, and the Rochester Park System he designed.  From 10 AM – 11 AM, we will join the public tour described below.  This is an event sponsored by the Highland Park Conservancy.

 “Join horticulturalist Susan Maney for a guided walking tour of Highland Park's glorious trees decked out in their stunning autumn color. Tour is free and open to the public.”

Depending on the weather and which part of the park we have walked with the horticulturalist, we can either walk some more, view the Lamberton Conservatory (a small botanical garden with three climate zones), or head straight to the Rochester Public Market (one of the longest, continuously operating farmers’ markets in the country.  The Rochester Public Market has been in the same location for over 100 years and has recently completed an extensive renovation (The ribbon cutting was July 2017).

There we will find many options for lunch, everything from plain and simple to organic and gourmet.  After lunch, the crowds will have thinned, and there will be time to enjoy the abundance of our local farms.

Wear comfortable shoes.  The paths will be paved in the park.  Dress appropriately for the weather.  Bring shopping bags.  Lunch could cost from $4 - $10, depending on where you choose to eat (or bring your own and eat at a picnic table if you like)..There are bathroom facilities at Lamberton Conservatory and at the Public Market.  I believe there is a $3 suggested donation at Lamberton.

This free event is open to members and non-members of Women Outdoors. Non-members are invited to join us on two events to see what you think. The third time's a charm - we'll ask you to join Women Outdoors at that point. You can join now by clicking on Join Us.
