Recreation & Entertainment
Named “Number 1 Sportstown in New York” by Sports Illustrated, it’s no surprise that Webster is focused on athletics. Webster houses two lighted stadiums, a hockey/soccer complex, an indoor track and Olympic size indoor pool. There’s more to the town than sports, however. Several major restaurants can be found here as well as nightclubs, pubs, and movie theatres.
Kent Park, at 1700 Schlegel Road, is home to athletic fields and a 25-acre Arboretum featuring a wonderful array of flowers and plants; North Ponds Park, at 750 Holt Road, provides pavilions, grills, and trails; Sandbar Park, on the shores of Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay at 279 Lake Road, is a great spot for a picnic; Webster Park at 255 Holt Road is comprised of 550 acres and offers spectacular views of Lake Ontario as well as several lodges and shelters; a Skate Park at 985 Eber Drive is open from dawn to dusk, designed for inline skaters, skateboarders and bikers. There are several more parks in Webster with trails, athletic fields and baseball diamonds; as well as a spray park for kids in the summer located at 985 Ebner Drive.
The June Webster Lakefront Classic is one of the largest soccer tournaments conducted in the region; a Christmas Street Festival complete with a Parade of Lights is held in December; outdoor movies are shown in Gazebo Park during the summer; a Jazz Festival is planned in July; outdoor concerts are offered in the summer months; and Fairport Village Days are in August.
