Travel Tips for Brockport
Come to Sagawa Park to hear free music by local talent.
The groups begin playing at 7pm every Thursday in June, July and August (except for holidays). They last for at least two hours. You can bring your own seat or blanket or come really early and try to get one of the general seats (very limited).
The music genre is generally popular tunes or country music but can range to classical and broadway or ethnic like Irish or Germanic national favorites. All music is played by local bands and some of them are actually pretty good. The local TV company records the event and plays back the music on Saturday on the Public Broadcasting Station.
Refreshments are sold by street vendors. Entrance is free; parking is first-come-first served.
to get there:
take route 104 out to route 19. go south on route 19 to the town of Brockport. Sagawa Park is on the corner of route 19 (Main Street) and Erie Street. On street parking at the park is limited. try the parking areas west of the park on Queen and Lincoln Streets.
Every September 11th, a memorial vigil is held at the Brockport Firemen's Monument. The statue and surrounding land is dedicated to those brave men who lost their lives helping others on 11SEP01.

This is a nice quiet park with picnicking facilities (tables, grill-stands) all handicap accessible. There are some minor trails in the park good for walking or jogging (not hiking or birding). The park is landscaped to allow great views of the Erie Canal area.
There are some limited playground equipment for the kids. Recently they have installed a covered shelter for those who wish to enjoy the outdoors in bad weather.
There are no rest rooms.

take route 104 to connect to route 19. go south on route 19 to West Avenue (just north of downtown Brockport). go west on West Avenue a few blocks to Smith Street and then south on Smith Street to the park.
The high school years.
I attended high school in Brockport. Moving to a new school is never easy, but entering a new district in high school is socially impossible. You simply can't compete with kids who have known each other since second grade. Let me assure you, bullying was alive and well in that district while I was there.
There were some nice people there, though, and lots of good experiences to counteract the bad. Although I am not a believer in the phrase "high school is some of the best years of one's life", I certainly learned a lot in those four years, and not all of it from the teachers.
I've recently gotten back in touch with a couple of people from high school. I heard a rumour that a reunion is coming up. I'd like to go, I think. But getting there from London might be a bit difficult..
