Firearms. No unauthorized person shall take or otherwise transport any firearms, air guns, BB guns, paintball guns, slingshots, fireworks, firecrackers, torpedoes, explosives, swords, knives, or bows and arrows in the park. Violators will be prosecuted.
Fires. It is unlawful to build any fires in the park except in grills and/or fireplaces that are specifically designed and set aside for such purpose, nor shall any lighted matches, cigarettes, cigars or burning tobacco be deposited or left where a likelihood of fire may exist. Campfires are strictly prohibited.
Fences. Climbing on any park fence is strictly prohibited.
Garbage; carry-in-carry-out policy. Everything visitors bring into the park they are required to take out of the park. Littering of any kind is strictly prohibited. If pavilions and grounds are not left in a reasonably clean condition, future reservation privileges may be revoked.
Pavilions. All pavilions are open to the public unless prior reservation has been made with the Village. To reserve a pavilion, please contact the Village Hall at 585-237-2216. Pavilions are for picnics. No skateboards, roller blades or bicycles are allowed.
Pets. No owner or person harboring any pet shall permit or allow such pet to run at large in the park, unless such pet is effectively restrained by a leash and accompanied by its owner or appropriate person able to control the animal. Any person with a dog or other pet in his or her possession in the park shall be responsible for both the conduct of the animal and for removal from the park of feces deposited by such animal. The person with the dog or other pet must have in his or her possession the equipment required for feces removal. Bags are available at pet station locations; if empty, it is still the owner's responsibility for feces removal. Pets are not permitted in the playground area.
Playground equipment. Equipment is open to all children unless age restriction limits are posted. All equipment shall be used in the manner for which it was originally intended.

No person shall injure, deface, disturb, mutilate or befoul any part of the park or any of the buildings, pavilions, signs, equipment, lighting system or other property found therein or remove, injure, peel, cut or destroy any trees, plants, flowers, shrubs, fauna or flora.
Swimming/fishing. It is unlawful for any person to swim or bathe in the pond located in the park. Fishing is allowed with a child during regular park hours.
