This unique property encompasses 2/3 mile of natural lakefront on Lake Ontario, mature woodlands, a wildflower meadow, and important migratory bird habitat. The property surrounds the Historic Lakeview Cemetery and also includes active fruit farmland. The Preserve is open to the public dawn to dusk, every day of the week, but closed on Wednesdays for agricultural management.
