Ellwanger & Barry Park

Corner of Linden Street and Meigs Street

Ellwanger & Barry Park is a park and playground in the Highland Park Neighborhood. It has two play sets: one for toddlers and one for school-age children, both on a rubberized play surface. Swing sets include baby swings. There is also open green space.

Originally called the Linden Street Playground, the park was renamed for Ellwanger and Barry in 2009 by approval of the Highland Park Neighborhood Association. The new name was approved unanimously by the Rochester City Council on September 8. Two weeks later, on September 20, a dedication was performed by Mayor Robert J. Duffy and City Council member Elaine Spaull, as both attended the Taste of the Neighborhood picnic. 1

Since then, the Ellwanger & Barry Park has been voted best park in the city in several polls.

The statue of a pear tree was created by local nature artist Craig Wilson.
