While visiting the Syracuse area we wanted to visit this park after reading some of the reviews. It looks great in photographs and does have a beautiful view of the lake but in person it is hard to get past the fact that they have a major problem with goose poop. Poop on the grass, poop on the walkway, poop... More

My family and I came here on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a leisurely 16 mile bike ride along the lake. The road is wide enough that you don't feel cramped, and there are some beautiful shady paths a little further in. Along the way there are little stops with shaded benches and bike racks if you need to take... More

I will never step foot in this place again. Such a shame. Parents just dump their kids off in the playground and let them do "whatever". My kids were attacked by 2 children twice the size of them. Never again.

We were very impressed with this place (found it whilst visiting Syracuse) The lake is very calm and it is relaxing just to watch the ducks or small boats go by. There is a separate area for pets and also a place to cook BBQ. The track for biking is 2.5 miles long so you get a good workout here.

At the parkway enterance is the skate park, perfect for all ages for bikes, skateboards and scooters( helmets required) there is a super big playground with separate area for younger kids and handicap access equipment. Bikes for rent include single and canopy bikes that fit... More

Beautiful lake front park with a children's playground and biking trails.The only disappointment was the goose poop that lined the trails like land mines.

The lake has many attractions including the salt museum. Perfect place to chill out while everyone else is working. And even better, the parking was free.

Have always enjoyed being able to rollerblade at the park. Just recently took up running and OLP is perfect! It is flat and clean and even when it is busy there is still room to get in a great workout!

We've been all over the Great Lakes and the Finger Lakes and this park still ranks right at the top for us. So carefully designed and maintained, people flock here all day long. And there's so much to do. Each trip is different from the last. Rent bikes, surreys, or one of the pedal powered buses and take the whole... More
