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

Even though, it was cold, grey and a bit drizzly we enjoyed a brisk walk by the lake. There's also a nice playground for kids to use. I can see in warmer weather how it would be a popular place to have picnics.

I love that it's a family park. I drive there then park my car then we separate since there's something for all of us to do there. Some of us ride bikes, some of us speed walk and the balance of us run together. When we get home - we can hardly wash and eat because we're so tired.

we took a long walk around the lake. The scenery was great. Wide paths to walk and ride bikes around the lake. They are setting up a Christmas light show which I assume will open soon. You will be able to drive several miles looking at the lights, they look like it will be a great show.
