I go to Onondaga lake park all the time as a local. It's a great place to walk, ride your bike, roller blade, skateboard whatever. There's a salt museum, skate park, benches and bathrooms along the way, a playground, and little place at the end before heading back and there are trams all along the way to pick you up.... More

Onondaga Lake Park is a large and very diverse park that offers something for just about everyone. Walking, biking, running, paddling, baseball, kickball...you name it! It also has a large skateboard park, a huge kid's are with all kinds of swings and slides and stuff, and lots more. Sometimes it's fun to just come and watch the sunset, or feed... More

Nice place to go for a run. 5 mile paved path by lake. Cleared even in winter. Heid's hot dogs by the park is a side benefit.

I've been here a number of times to find the local geocaches. We stopped on our way through so our girls to stretch their legs and play on the Wegmans park. Very nice, very clean.

we love taking the bikes and roller blades to the park. We have been going for years. Nice road for exercise by the lake. Green spaces, pavilions, tables & grills for picnics. Lots of parking. Playground for the little ones.

Don't expect peaceful unless you show up at the crack of dawn and even then it's questionable. A very nice multi-purpose park and family spot, but it can be crowded at peak times of the day and weekends. Sometimes the ecology of the lake creates a terrible smell that is a turnoff as well.

This is a great place. Lights on the Lake is a good drive through. Running is the best. The trails are nice and marked. The scenery is great for running, blading, or walking.

I enjoy the size of the park that surrounds Onondaga Lake. The East trail is open all year. The West and West extension trails are open but not plowed in the winter. It's a great place to go running!

The Onondaga Lights on the Lake festival is the largest Christmas light show in the northeast. This is drive through the park is 45 minutes of Christmas spectacular. It is best when there is a lite snow falling. Admission is $10 per car. A definite must see.
