It's very nice and relaxing; they always have activities especially during the summer. There are festivals, jazz nights and the Xmas tree is lighted up as a tradition.

The fountains were working when I was there, and the place looked beautiful, if a little deserted. Moving memorial to the Civil War soldiers, and also the Jerry Monument - a monument to one of the first acts of resistance to the Fugitive Slave Act.

Syracuse has its depressing parking lots and some unfortunate ugly-to mediocre "modern" buildings. BUT it is well worth the time for anyone who enjoys strolling around faded urban centers. There are many lovely buildings from the 19th and early 20th century. I spent an an...More

Maybe it was the time of day, i.e. early morning, but the place was quiet with few people around, the water jets were doing their thing, the monument and statues were reflecting the sun. The Clinton Square is huge and strategically located. Would have liked...More
