In the heart of the Upper Monroe area sits Pinnacle Hill, a biking and walking trail that leads to the highest point in the City of Rochester. At one end of the neighborhood sits the Culver Road Armory, which acts as the home of many restaurants and businesses, including TRATA, Peppermint Boutique, Fleet Feet and Village Bakery & Cafe. Along Monroe Avenue, residents can enjoy several eateries, including Jeremiah's Tavern and Blue Taro, an upscale Vietnamese restaurant. 

 

There is a strong sense of community spirit in the Upper Monroe neighborhood, which is reflected in the Wide Water Community Gardens. This greenspace has over fifty rentable plots and hosts several public food-producing and ornamental garden events.
