? Take Me There
Shortsville Budd Park is a great community staple with some older equipment but still lots of fun. There are swings, climbing structures, an old school metal slide and a ginormous slide! Next to the playground is tennis courts, basketball courts, and a ball field. There are swinging seats for adults along the play area to sit and relax.
The Hiking Trail and Community Garden
This small town park has a picturesque river to follow and lilacs to smell! There is plenty of sites to take in and fun for kids to explore. Bridges, pavilions, picnic tables, flowers and stumps to walk on- there is a little bit for everyone. Looking for a place just to sit and listen to water? There are plenty of swinging seats to enjoy the scenery. This trail is not stroller friendly but it is still toddler friendly and has flat terrain. There is also a secondary trail next to the community garden that also follows the river and will take you to the pheasant enclosure. This hidden gem was just established in 2020.
