Sorry, but in my opinion Spencer Park is not one of the best parks in the area. Plus with living in Rochester, It costs $10 to get it!

I live in Rochester and I think Spencer is great! Since Stoney took their life guards away, I feel Spencer is still safe and clean.

We love Spencer Park! Also, I believe you can vote as many times as you want. I just voted 10 times (just keep clicking "Vote Again") and moved us up in the rankings!

Spencer Park, yes it is expensive to get in wethere one is a resident or not, as i am. however, it is one of the cleanest swimming places around here! stony creek is a large park, but the water is disgusting.

The park is one of the treasures in Rochester Hills just like the lady that the park was named after.
