Great place for a nice relaxing walk. Flat and easy walking. Lots of people enjoying a nice day. Parking is good as either end. Good for biking or rollerblading too. Dog friendly. Saw two pair of swans here late last year. Saw osprey here in the summer.

This is a great place to spend for walking , bike riding, picnicking or just resting to read a book or walking the dog. Plenty of open places to do what you wish. A peaceful place. Just enjoy the day.

A beautiful spot to run, picnic and play. The West Shore Trail offers a less busy option to the opposite side of the lake. Although it's busy, you can find a bench secluded enough to enjoy the scenery in peace. I love that you can either relax and enjoy or pop your ear buds in and work up a sweat.... More

One of my favorite parks to exercise early mornings and/or catch every sunset. Christmas lights along the path make it a very attractive night walk if you dress appropriately for cold weather. However, lately winter weather is conspicuously absent and shorts will do just fine LOL Walking along the lake among many friendly faces always a plus in any public... More

Onondaga Lake Park is a great place to walk, jog, bike, inline skate, and more in Central New York. With a playground for kids, the Wegmans Good Dog park, Salt Museum, concrete Skate park, bike rentals and Lights on the Lake for the holidays it's a great place to visit and enjoy the seasons.

Fun dog watching, great for long walks and bikes. Tough on feet for me, the hard pavement, rather go to Beaver Lake and also miss the little food stand at the end. I go Retreat after a walk. Fun watching planes go over. They're very low, gets really breezy from the polluted lake and don't go at night alone, girl... More

Walked along the lake. Nice park but most of the attractions are closed for the winter. Will definitely come back in the summer. Nice looking restaurant facing the lake.

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
