Onondaga Lake Park is truly a people’s place, with activity from dawn to dusk every day of the year. It’s special for a lot of reasons…free admission; the best paved, vehicle free trails in the region; free outdoor wireless internet (at the Griffin Visitor Center area);a legacy of history reflecting 500 years of community growth; and as the host to great special events, sporting competitions and festivals. Seven miles of shoreline nooks and crannies provide tremendous options for family picnics, including developed areas in Willow Bay and Cold Springs.
