Maplewood Park, also known as Seneca Park West, is a landscaped public park in Rochester, New York situated between Lake Avenue and the Genesee River. The two-mile (3 km) park features many trails along the river gorge and the river bank below, scenic views of two waterfalls and a nationally accredited Rose Garden.

The park was laid out by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed nearby Highland Park.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
