Cornellians and locals alike share this park at the foot of Cascadilla Gorge. Steps hewn from the local bluestone lead through the gorge and up to Collegetown.

The surrounding neighborhood offers a range of rental housing, making the area popular with grad students and university staff.

The hike to campus takes about 30 minutes, whereas a leisurely stroll with stops to admire the views might take an hour.
