Welcome to Greece, NY

Overview

The large suburban Town of Greece is more than forty square miles, of which eight are directly located on the shores of Lake Ontario. That region provides some of Monroe County's favorite areas for wildlife exploration, including the Braddock Bay State Fish & Wildlife Management region with its popular Raptors Program. A Canal Park offers unique access to the Erie Canal; and Greece Community Center features a large gym and a very active senior program along with fitness areas and walking tracks. Communities within the town borders range from areas where you'll find modest, well-kept homes with strong neighborhood profiles to waterfront properties boasting some of the finest views in Monroe County.
