We recently went for a sunset walk on the pier and it was so beautiful. One usually hears many different languages spoken by the visitors there, reminding us what a diverse city we live in. The old bathhouse is especially architecturally beautiful. A great place...More

Went down to Estes street which had plenty of free parking. Entered the beach through the community center. Beach was clean.

The park is next to the marina. The beach is fairly big. The water looked clean. We were there on a Friday late afternoon and it was a bit overcast. Not crowded. Very peaceful. Many boats coming and going. Enjoyed our brief visit.

I really enjoyed seeing Lake Ontario and this beautiful beach park. So clean and well maintained. The marina was fun to see and we were able to eat lunch in a waterfront restaurant. Glad we visited.

Our cruise boat was docked at the Rochester marina for a day, and I went walking out the pier to the old light house. On the way back I turned right into Ontario Beach Park. There is a wide sandy beach with lifeguards for safe...More

Very pretty park and a long, long pier. Sad to see the graffiti on the end of the pole. Also, bathrooms without stall doors are gross and lack any sense of privacy. Beautiful beach, nice marina. Sad to see Carousel not open during the day....More
