Recently moved here about 8 months ago with my boyfriend and this is hands down our favorite spot in Liverpool! The lake is absolutely gorgeous, and there are plenty of benches/spots to sit and relax. Also a great place to go running, biking, roller blading, you name it.

"Snowy city" and Syracuse University Men's basketball team are two important factors related to Syracuse, NY in most people's mind. If you are in the region, be sure to visit Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool, NY which is located just north of the City of Syracuse. There is a quite trail along one side of the lake lining up with...

With ample free parking and easy access, Onondaga Lake Park gives you the opportunity to take a walk, run, or even roller blade down the path. Visit the Famous Salt Museum, sit by the lake, or even feed the birds and ducks if you like.... More

Love this park for walks, runs and bike rides. Great paths to do all three activities. Including nice picnic areas with BBQs and shaded areas to hold for outdoor gatherings.

We visit this park often. There is a stretch of road for rollerblading, or biking, and also a separate path for walkers / strollers, dog walks. This is a great park for running or biking as there is no vehicle traffic at all for quite a few miles. From Thanksgiving to New Year's this park closes at 4[?] in order... More

If you are traveling in this area with your dog, great place to take your dog for a long walk. Check out the walking paths. Dogs need to be on lead but it is a pretty place to enjoy. There is also a dog park there but we did not have time to check it out.

It's always a great place for a picnic, a walk, bicycle ride, get togethers, even corporate events. There's never a lack of beautiful photo-ops!
