The city did a wonderful job beautifying this park, installing fire pits, rocking chairs and stairways to make the most of the lovely lake views. There are bathroom facilities, a playground, walkways, lake views, basketball courts, and plenty of seating. You can rent the pavillion for parties. You can also reserve the fire pit area for a night, which I did recently.

We stopped by this park that overlooks Lake Ontario. This is a public park with free parking, picnic tables and some paved paths. The park is well-maintained and even on the rainy day we visited well used. I didn't see any public bathrooms but feel like there must be some in the park.
The park offers an unobstructed view of Lake Ontario that is very relaxing. There are rocking chairs and an overlook area that is pleasant.
We saw joggers and dogs are allowed. There is a pavilion that can be rented for larger groups.

A really pleasant lake front park in downtown Oswego. Lots of green space, basketball courts, water park, walking trails, and more. Very pleasant place to watch the sunset as well.

The park is located on the northwest side of Oswego . Am unable to say the park's acreage is, however there is a 5.9 mile walking loop. The loop is composed of the Oswego Trail-outside loop- & the Breitbeck Park Trail-inside loop-on a cement walkway.

The park's center exhibit is the Kingsford Bell & Tower, which is a Meneely Bell that signalled workers of the Oswego Starch Company for the Kingsford Fire Company or for July 4 celebrations. A short walk is the Volunteer Made America-A Tribute To Rosemary Sinnett Nesbitt.

There are a total of 58 benches that face Lake Ontario in 36, 13, & 9 sections. Each bench is dedicated or a memorial to a person or persons. The 36 benches face a walk down seating area with six metal chairs. The 13 benches face a seating area with six wooden rocking chairs. The west end are nine benches four wooden rocking chairs.

Toward the western end is a children's playground with a sliding gym & two swing sets with four swings each. Next door is an open pavilion with nine picnic tables along with four cooking grills. There are countless shade trees including at least 12 picnic tables & several nearby track cans.

Parking is free in two lots. To the southeast end is a medium lot of Lake Street, while a smaller lot is located off Lake & Ontario Streets. Can't recall where the restrooms are located, possibly by the pavilion.

A visitor can go for a walk or walk their dog or a jog or just relax & enjoy the view or scenery. My visit was on an early Friday morning-not many visitor at 9:00 AM-before a visit to the Fort Ontario Historical Site. I realize this is a long review for the park, however the time was worth what I encountered. A visit for any reason is recommended.

This park is a great place for a walk by Lake Ontario. Many improvements have been made to the park including the steps leading down to the path right next to the lake. The Heart shaped garden at the top of the landing. Rocking chairs to sit in and take in the view.

Amazing views of Lake Ontario! You can walk the park, play ball, shoot a Frisbee, throw a football and so much more all the while enjoying the fantastic views of beautiful Lake Ontario. Play basketball, kick around the soccer ball or play softball. Don't pass up this park. You can even grille and eat all under a covered pavilion. One of the best locations in Oswego!

The City of Oswego has put quite a bit of time into beautifying the park. It's a great place to walk or run or gather with friends.

Overall just gorgeous! Brand new Memorial Basketball court, plenty of bench seating along the upper park sidewalk to just view our beautiful Lake Ontario, beautification of the shoreline, seating, firepit, walkway...just gorgeous! Only downside, is the children's playground. Much needed total renovations. But I'm sure that our amazing Mayor, has it on his list for 2020!

Had never visited Oswego; motel recommended this park for viewing the sunset. It seems to have been designed for just that, with strategically placed benches and overlooks. Beautiful flower plantings and paths, saw people fishing and playing frisbee and just enjoying life. Highly recommended.
