I have never experienced such a thing. My husbands family invited us to join them in feeding the birds and seeing this park.
It was so amazing to have bird seed in your hand, and the birds literally come down and land on your hand and they eat, right out of your hand. The many different types of trees are all labeled to educate everyone and the wildlife you see is just astounding.
One of the greatest events in my life. Loved every minute of it.

Mendon Ponds Park is a large and lovely park, with lots of woods, trails, ponds, and nature. It is a great place to go hiking, and its just minutes away from downtown Rochester, but you feel like you are far from any city, out in the country. There are also some very nice lodges you can rent for parties, which have kitchens and bathroom facilities.

That is my biggest complaint about the Rochester region - the lack of hills. Other then that, this is an incredible park! It is huge and, as the name suggests, there are lots of ponds and miles of trails. One of my favorites in Western New York!

Great park and trails. Have ridden my horse on their trails and had a blast with a picknick lunch, very beautiful and easy to navigate.

When my children were very young, I would hurry up with my days chores to get everyone ready for a swim at the ponds. During those years, there were life guards chasing away the geese who were cluttering up the area. After the life guard program shut down due to funding, I still went on my own swimming for the need of revival and a wonderful break in the day. Now a days, the weeds and geese have overrun the area. I still walk the paths and find pleasure as long as the dogs are on leashes and horse manure has not been left on the path. I occasionally cross country ski there during the winter months. It is still a lovely place to go to.
