Welcome to Pavilion, NY


The town of Pavilion is in the southeast corner of Genesee County, bordering Wyoming County to the south, Livingston County to the east, the towns of LeRoy and Stafford to the north, and Bethany to the west. The Oatka Creek flows through the center of town, and most early settlers took advantage of the creek to set up mills and farm the fertile land.


Pavilion’s small business district includes a bank, a bakery, a coffee shop, an auto-parts store and a pizza place. Everything else you need is a quick drive away. For groceries, there’s a Top’s Friendly Markets in LeRoy and another in Batavia. For retail, Batavia has stores like Walmart, KMart, Sears and Target. Both towns have plenty of places to eat.

Outdoor activities – hunting, fishing, camping, and snowmobiling – are popular here. There are plenty of other attractions within a short drive.
