If you haven't been down here in a couple years, you are in for a surprise. Not only does the area still boast a lovely test garden by the marina, the entire terminus of the canal has been uncovered and the grounds have been redone. It is really lovely and the concerts here (some free, others very affordable) are a fabulous way to spend a summer evening, even for persons of a certain age, such as myself (bring your own lawn chairs...no outside food or beverages allowed, but plenty available for purchase).

Nice waterfront stroll, with a bit of history, to boot. Clean, family-friendly. Easy parking. Outdoor concerts are held here during the summer months, and it's a pleasant evening, plenty of bathrooms for all!

Took a long time to get it developed but worth the wait. The city did a great job to turn it into a destination.

Fun boat ride with friends and family. Perfect opportunity to take in all the views the city and lake has to offer. Reasonable rates and a pleasant way to travel on a hot day.

The people of this area have been waiting for years for a comprehensive plan and some action to be taken with the Erie Canal Harbor. Finally, there have been some advances with a beautiful walkway and park, concerts, new snack shack, restaurants. We need more!
