Crescent Park (also formerly known as Genesee Park Place) is a pocket park located on South Crescent Street and Genesee Place. It mainly serves the population from Riverview Parkway North to Crossgates Street to Oakwood Street.
It is located on the southern end of this neighborhood but is within easy walking distance from all parts of neighborhood. It is open from dawn to dusk.
The development of Crescent Park includes the following: Small playground with one main play structure, several small flower/shrub plantings; a small basketball court with basket and backstop and perimeter fencing alongside South Crescent Street. The park is not lighted but does receive some light from nearby streetlights.
The park was renovated in 2007-08 and its current equipment is in excellent condition and offers an array of play options. Future plans for the park include the addition of new belt swings and new bucket swings as well as some additional stand alone equipment.
