We love going to the park when we visit 'Cuse. We normally go to Heid's, get some hot dogs to go, then head to the Park to enjoy them. After eating, we stroll along the walkway, taking in the view. The park has come a very long way over the years. Many different aspects of the park to enjoy.

My wife's Mom is doing poorly but loves to see the water. We often take her for a stroll along the water in her wheelchair. The park offers level walkways that can easily be negotiated with a walker or wheelchair.

Nice trail. Flat, clean paved surface. Mostly shaded. Trees block most views of the lake. Easy to walk or bike. Trail is closed near the new amphitheater.

Well marked trails for walkers and another one for runners and bikers. Plenty of benches for those that want to take a break and enjoy the view of the lake. This is my place to exercise while in Liverpool.

I was driving around the area and came upon this park. It is a very tranquil and beautiful place to spend a couple of hours relaxing, walking, running, kayaking, etc. The only downside to this park is the insane amount of goose droppings. I did see a few park employees walking around, but not one was scooping poop. The water... More

It is a beautiful park with quite a few different walking and biking paved trails of varying distances. Just a short distance from Route 81. Beautiful views of the lake and shore homes. Nicely maintained. There are wonderful restaurants just within walking distance.

This is a well appointed park, good for so many uses. Separate paths for relaxed walkers and athletic runners. Good quality equipment for children, and, I am told, dogs. I like it for the view on the paths. Beautiful!
