The main attraction at Griffith Park
Griffith Park Open field
Just a mile away from Route 490 in Pittsford is a park that isn’t really identified officially: Griffith Park. According to the Town Board minutes, the Town of Pittsford met with residents to discuss the establishment of Griffith Park in May of 2000. In July of 2000, it was resolved that the town would begin Phase I of their environmental survey and boundary assessment. Just a year later at a meeting in August of 2001, the Town shared that it was on track with the improvements it had planned including tearing pavement up, seeding the field and adding the property to its mowing list. That was the last of the official mentions of Griffith Park. When Rochester Parks visited in mid September of 2012 (more than 10 years since its establishment) we found a single open field, a parking lot and two very short trails.
