  • Highland Park is beautiful, especially in the spring when the many varieties of lilacs are in bloom with their sweet scents filling the air. There is an amazing observatory with interesting plants...

  • We went through the conservatory and while there are some interesting plants, this place needs a lot of work. The windows looked like they hadn’t been washed in years, the arrangements were not...

  • One of the best parks in New York State. You can find great events here throughout the year. I’m the spring and summer there are so many beautiful gardens! The lilacs in May are absolutely stunning. The county does a fantastic job maintaining this public space and seems to continually make improvements to the park. Overall a remarkable out door space for all to enjoy.
  • Lush, quiet, and delightful, at least in summer. :) Fascinating just how criminal it is to tamper with a reservoir, so noted that as well in the photos. Kind of a neat hilly vibe overall. Benches throughout for your sitting pleasure. My photos take you on a little walking tour (in order) of the loop around the reservoir.
