Onondaga Lake Park is truly beautiful! with the addition of the west lake trail it is now better than ever. The new path on the west side has stunning views that we have never seen after living here over fifty years. this trail enhances the entire park to world-class status

Always something in nature to see asyou stroll along the path near the water. Separate path for bikers and joggers!

Even though, it was cold, grey and a bit drizzly we enjoyed a brisk walk by the lake. There's also a nice playground for kids to use. I can see in warmer weather how it would be a popular place to have picnics.

I love that it's a family park. I drive there then park my car then we separate since there's something for all of us to do there. Some of us ride bikes, some of us speed walk and the balance of us run together. When we get home - we can hardly wash and eat because we're so tired.

we took a long walk around the lake. The scenery was great. Wide paths to walk and ride bikes around the lake. They are setting up a Christmas light show which I assume will open soon. You will be able to drive several miles looking at the lights, they look like it will be a great show.

When I first moved to Syracuse Onondaga lake park was a smelly eye sore. Now that the county has invested money in park and have cleaned the lake the park has become a beautiful place to take a walk ride a bike or just sit and watch a terrific sunset. Park is also dog friendly.

I stopped here for a scenic run along the lake. I was not disappointed. Plenty of parking, wide paved path and option to run on some dirt trails as well.

Beautiful area to walk and view the lake. Playground area, dog walking area and path for walkers to enjoy a stroll around the lake. Easy to get to and plenty of parking this is a nice stop off when visiting Liverpool NY.

Onondaga Lake Park is a gorgeous setting for a park that runs part of the Eastern shoreline of this finger lake near Syracuse. There are great walkways that line the park for folks who want to walk, jog or roller-blade, and lots of activities for just about everyone else. Special areas are set up for softball, basketball, skateboard parks, jungle... More
