" A Town of Planned Progress"
As a suburb of Rochester, Penfield is surrounded by neighboring towns in all four directions. Webster is to the north, Fairport is south, Walworth is east, and Irondequoit and Brighton are west. Many believe that nearly 2 million years ago, Penfield’s topography was formed by melting glaciers. This would explain the varying terrains throughout Penfield and in the many parks. Penfield shares the Irondequoit Bay with the towns of Webster and Irondequoit, however it has over 13 parks and recreational spaces. Penfield’s convenient proximity to several areas in Rochester, in addition to its family-friendly and welcoming community have made it a sought-after location!
