Levi Corser Park was purchased by the town around 1978. The highway department used the area for material storage for several years. The town acquired land around the town hall and highway department and that allowed for Levi Corser Park to be developed. The Army Core of engineers built the track and the two older 20 ’x 40’ pavilions. A grant for trees helped fund the parks trees. Another grant was used to build the tennis, basketball courts and the playground. The community was most instrumental in volunteering their time to build the facilities at low cost. Many donations of money from local groups and individuals have funded benches, playground equipment, picnic tables, a water fountain, and The Bristol Buck. Ray Barend and his family donated to build and enclose the main pavilion and more.
Patriot Park was acquired from Ontario County in 2012 at no cost to the Town of Bristol. The park is 12.6 acres and located on County Road 32 just west of Mud Creek on the south side of the road. There is a sign “Patriot Park” in the center of the park. Plans for more trails are in the works. The park will remain a natural environment with trails to hike and enjoy the beauty of the ecosystem. Donations of a picnic table for dining and benches for resting and viewing nature are encouraged. The park is dog friendly. Happy Healthy Hiking. There is a small parallel parking lot by the road.
Codding Conservation Area was donated by Henry “Hank” Butch” Codding in January 2017. The 12.9 acres was added to Patriot Park and now totals 25.6 acres. Trails are being developed to maintain the natural beauty and to enjoy the wetlands. Fishing is allowed in Mud Creek. Donations of a picnic table for dining and benches for resting and viewing nature are encouraged. The park is dog friendly.
The parks are located on the south side of County Road 32 just west of State Route 64.
