FUN FACTS

Upper Mount Hope is filled with eager college students and recent graduates of the University of Rochester, conveniently located in the heart of this neighborhood. Mixed in with students are several long time residents and families that have fallen in love with the area’s fantastic restaurants, businesses and amenities.

 

One of the perks of Upper Mount Hope is Collegetown, a development project that has added dozens of restaurants and businesses to the area. On the West side of the neighborhood sits Genesee Valley Park, a greenspace designed by Frederick Law Olmsted that includes tennis courts, sports fields, ice skating rinks and golf courses. Residents can enjoy the natural beauty of Genesee Valley and walk alongside the Erie Canal and Genesee River in this curated sanctuary. 

 

On the East side of the neighborhood, visitors can explore another project of Frederick Law Olmsted, Rochester’s famous Highland Park. In the springtime, lilacs and magnolia trees light up the park’s pathways and attract thousands of tourists from across the United States to the annual Lilac Festival.
