Park Information


This beautiful Monroe County Park is located on the west shore of Irondequoit Bay and offers hiking and access to the bay for fishing. Completely undeveloped, Irondequoit Bay Park West’s 147 acres are located along approximately 2,000 feet of Irondequoit Bay water frontage. Irondequoit Bay Park West features a small undeveloped car-top boat launch.

Location and Directions

Irondequoit Bay Park West is located along the southwestern shoreline of Irondequoit Bay, north of Empire Boulevard and east of 590 in the Town of Irondequoit. 


At its March Meeting, the Monroe County Parks Advisory Committee (PAC) hosted a Public Workshop on Shared Use Trails in Tryon Park, which included the presentation of a trail expansion proposal by Genesee Regional Off-Road Cyclists (GROC), as well as an opportunity for public input/discussion. 

The GROC proposal would create a new shared use trail in Tryon Park to connect the existing shared use trails in Tryon Park and Irondequoit Bay Park West. 

A copy of the presentation and proposal is posted for review, here: GROC PRESENTATION & PROPOSAL.

Public input/comment on the proposal was welcomed and received by the Monroe County Parks Department.

At the April PAC Meeting, the Parks Department presented its preliminary analysis of the proposal.

A copy of the preliminary analysis is posted for review, here:  MC PARKS PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS.

The Parks Department’s Findings and Recommendations are, as follows:

·         The proposed trail improves safety by promoting a route that encourages users to cross at a signalized crosswalk.

·         The proposed trail utilizing sustainable design meets the environmental thresholds for construction.

·         The trail location does not meet the 100’ preferred minimum for a buffer throughout the entire length of the trail.

·         Due to the potential impact on neighboring properties it is recommended that alternative routes and other mitigation measures be evaluated prior to further consideration of this proposal.

The Monroe County Department of Parks stands ready to work with all interested parties to facilitate further analysis of the connector trail proposal and any other options.
