Alpine Adventure Zone
Wow! Alpine Adventure Zone is a must visit no matter what side of Rochester you live. This playground is massive with activities for kids two and up! For the little ones there are: baby swings, a saucer swing and a bench swing. The younger ones also enjoy the tunnels, cabin and the smaller balance beams with assistance. You will find the older kids playing hide and seek as well as “The Floor is Lava” here when they are done scaling the bridges and balance beams.
There is plenty of parking adjacent to the playground as well as across the street. Picnic tables, grills and seasonal restrooms can also be found on site.
Please note, this playground is very large with some more challenging aspects. Sneakers and close adult supervision is recommended. This playground is located off of Hubble Road near the ski lodge. Take Me There
The Playground at Springdale Farm

The Fairy Trail
The Victory Fairy Trail was relocated to Springdale Farm during the fall of 2020. This project was a community effort led by Rochester’s Playbook! The project was designed to lift morale during the trying times brought on by Covid 19. Each house was created by different families that signed up to give their time and energy to this display. The Fairy houses can be found by taking the path all the way through the farm, past the pond and dairy barn, to the backwoods. This is about .2 miles of flat terrain to get to the woods. Once there, the wood fairy path is another .2 miles that loops around the woods. More Here.
There are many trails within Northampton Park. The popular trails include The Nature trail along the Fairview trail and the Victory Fairy Trail within Springdale Farm. If taking Brockport Spencerport Road, the trailhead for the Nature trail is the third opening on the left. You will see a sign for the Nature Trail by the parking area. Once you enter the trail, there is a offshoot to the left that will take you along high banks that border Salmon Creek. There are offshoots from the trail that bring you down to access the creek. Watch out for poison Ivy! Check out the Trail Map for information on all the trails at Northampton.
