The view is breathtaking, and there are many other activities to do such as kayaking, yoga, biking, rollerblading, etc. the park is kept pretty clean, but I do wish there were... More

Onondaga Lake Park is a great place for the family and pets. Walking trails, bike trials that cross the river, and the "Good Dog Park!" You cannot go wrong with an hour or a whole day spent exploring and visiting with other park-goers! Plus, you can pack a picnic and a good book for time spent in meditation. Most likely,... More

Great place for a walk or to take the kids to the playground. Lots of pays and beautiful scenery and with lake cleanup it is even better now. Also great place for boating and fishing.

Best place to go for a walk in Syracuse area. Beautiful walking and separate bike path right on the edge of Onondaga Lake.

Nice place to walk. It would be nice if something could be done to control the nasty geese population and their unpleasant droppings all over the walking paths.

This is a very nice place, bike riding, kayaking rental, hiking and many people use it even in the rain. We were at the Sawmill pavilion which was very nice.

My wife and I have "discovered" the West Shore Trail of Onondaga Lake, which is wonderful for bike riding. I know we are probably a nuisance to the runners and the walkers but this has become our favorite spot for evening bike rides. You can pick up the trail over near the new amphitheater. There is parking right at the... More

We love biking along the water as a family. Beautiful, well maintained park with safe biking paths. Place to rent kayaks and paddle boards.

Great to walk or ride a bike. Paved and flat. Gets lots of use. Dogs are welcome on a list and there are many. A fenced in dog park on the north end if the park. Great for fishing but don't eat them. There is an East and West trail. The West goes past the new ampatheater. This is a... More
