Most of my reviews of Syracuse will feature parks. Trying to keep the littles outdoors I searched parks. I was surprised and delighted to see Wegmans sponsored a playground. I love Wegmands grocery store so I would probably like the playground too, right?!? Right! Onondaga Park is amazing! It is located around the lake, features a dog park (opposite side... More

This is great for all types of exercise or a picnic. It's 2-3miles long with a lot of space. Since the lake is getting cleaner it's now much busier in the spring summer and fall months. Great views of the state fair fireworks. Multiple great restaurants within walking distance.

The walk has mile markers so you know when you've traveled 1/4, 1/2 or 5 miles. Beautiful view. Liverpool has done wonders on making it a great place to visit frequently

Great park. Paved trails & some small gravel trails along both lengths of lake. We hike all the trails & foot bridges over the highway encompassing many miles. We roller-bladed the east side twice and enjoyed their playground, play water fountains and riding a surrey. We only have great memories from this park.

With temps in the 60s, we took a leasurely stroll along the parkway in late February. Other folks were out walking their dogs and playing frisbee nearby. It was a great free outing for a summer-like mid-winter day.
