A favorite place of my childhood, and worth the return visit

Okay, so I admit that i still see Cobbs Hill through the eyes of a little girl visiting here and playing with my cousins. However, it's still beautiful and offers both a chance to... read more

I live close by and find the park to be a good place to enjoy a walk around the reservoir. The path around is about .70 of a mile. There is parking around the outside of road. No bathroom there up top which is unfortunate

Okay, so I admit that i still see Cobbs Hill through the eyes of a little girl visiting here and playing with my cousins. However, it's still beautiful and offers both a chance to be outdoors and some good views. We enjoyed the blast from the past.

Cobbs Hill Park is a hard one to describe because it is so many different things. Down low, next to Route 490, there are five very nice softball fields, along with jungle gyms and things for the kiddies. Also down there is a basketball court and a nice rec building that serves as both the administrative headquarters as well as... More

Cobb's Hill is one of my favorite places for a training run. There are plenty of hills to challenge any ability level.

What I love most about this park, in addition to the beautiful woods, the path around the reservoir, the view of the city, is the graffiti on the water towers at the top of the woods portion of the park. It's usually fresh, always fun, and sometimes top-notch.

I grew up visiting this park for baseball games my brother played in and us sledding in the winter. Never took walks until I was older and realized how much you could see and enjoy. Monroe County Water Authority has their main offices there and the county's largest water reservoir is there as well. Very tranquil area. There are some... More

About .7 miles around the top of the reservoir with a wonderful view of the city and the hills to the south. Get up in the air and get some exercise, cooled by the water of the reservoir.

People frequent Cobb's Hill Park for many reasons: running, walking, cycling, dog walking, meeting friends, having a picnic. It's great for those looking to challenge themselves... More
