With 5,000 feet of Lake Ontario waterfront, Durand-Eastman Park and Beach is a favorite for sun bathers. During the winter months, cross-country skiers find hilly terrain to conquer. Originally the estate of Dr. Henry Durand, the park was a gift to the city by Dr. Durand and George Eastman, who acquired some adjacent lands to increase its size to 965 acres. A challenging 18-hole golf course designed by famous golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones, and a golf clubhouse with a restaurant and pro shop. Its steep wooded slopes, valleys, scenic vistas, small lakes, spring flowering trees and spectacular fall foliage colors add to this park's exceptional beauty. Photo Credit: Jim Montanus
