Rochester Walks!

Rochester Walk! is a NYS-grant funded, City of Rochester initiative designed to get residents walking in their neighborhoods. With the joint efforts of the UR Center for Community Health and Action for a Better Community, Rochester Walks! worked with local residents to establish walking routes in neighborhoods around the city including in the Dewey/Driving Park area. These walking routes are all clearly marked with signage as well as sneaker stencils on the sidewalk to guide you along the way. Also featured on the Rochester Walks! routes are historical landmark plaques, describing notable people, places, and events in each neighborhood.   Read More →
