Aqueduct Park is a mini-park located downtown in the Four Corners neighborhood. According to a plaque dated 1974 it is privately owned and maintained by the Lawyers' Co-Operative Publishing Company "for the benefit of its employees and for the general public." It is bordered by Graves Street, East Main, and the Genesee River.

The park contains several benches and picnic tables. Its scenic views make it a popular lunchtime spot for many employees in the area. Several restaurants are right around the corner, including Byblos Cafe, Galleria Pizza, Hot Rosita's, and Subway.

In 2013 Aqueduct was a Critic Pick winner for "Best Pocket Park" in City Newspaper’s annual Best of Rochester contest.1

Note that the Rochester City website gives the address as 23 East Main. The Graves St. address works better with Google Maps, however.
