The Neighborhood


A warm and unique place to call home all year long.

A slower pace to fast-track your new senior living experience. Penfield, NY offers a quiet and slightly slower life free of the hustle-bustle of the modern world. Here, we embrace a more serene life, one filled with smiling faces and small-town charm. Modern amenities adorn our facility and enhance the lives of everyone, staff, and residents alike. 

And yet…for all its bucolic charms, Penfield lies only eight miles east of Rochester, the third largest metro area in New York State! You can enjoy a relaxing afternoon walk by a fast-flowing creek at Penfield’s Linear Park, followed by a night of dining and theater in downtown Rochester. At Legacy at Willow Pond you’ll experience natural beauty, friendly people, urban adventures close-by, and the good life. We can’t wait to see you.

A History of Penfield.

Nearly two million years ago, Penfield's topography was formed by melting glaciers, the same forces that created the Finger Lakes area’s undulating terrain. These glacial ice melt carvings left fertile lands which now are used for farming apples, cherries, plums, peaches, and pears.

The town was incorporated in 1810 by Daniel Penfield, who purchased the town lands in 1795 and moved to the area in 1809. Today Penfield is in Monroe County and a suburb of Rochester. Its motto is "A Town of Planned Progress".
