State of Play
Greater Rochester & the Finger Lakes
Aspen supports the Rochester Area Community Foundation as it activates State of Play Greater Rochester & the Finger Lakes in Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Wayne, and Yates Counties.
Since the release of the State of Play Greater Rochester & the Finger Lakes report, the initiative has made significant progress in the following ways:
The Rochester Area Community Foundation has completed their first round of Legacy Fund grants in Youth Sports, awarding $329,000 to 20 organizations that together serve over 6,500 kids.
Rochester Challenger Miracle Baseball, highlighted in the report, received a grant of over $400,000 to build out and operate Rochester’s only adaptive youth baseball park.
The State of Play report noted that “Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes have the ingredients to be a hub for action sports.” With funding support from the Tony Hawk Foundation and the State of New York, the city council unanimously approved the construction of the $2 million Roc City Skatepark.
The city of Rochester is creating a Corridor of Play, connecting the Strong Museum of Play to the city’s Riverway with fun, free play elements for families.
