Enjoy Winter!

Our City Parks are absolutely stunning in winter! On a clear winter day, and after a fresh snowfall, come enjoy the breathtaking beauty and serenity of the parks on foot. Bundle up and hike a quiet wooded trail, or take in the magnificent views from the high points of Schiller, Onondaga, Burnet or Lincoln. You’ll be glad you did.

When snow blankets the ground and the temperatures dip, be sure to embrace the season and take advantage of these terrific opportunities to stay active, outdoors, in the City of Syracuse! Did you know that we have three ice skating rinks to choose from? Or that Sunnycrest Park is home to more than 2.5 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails? How about our two designated sledding hills at Burnet and Sunnycrest? Now

When winter arrives, our golf course clubhouses at both Burnet Park and Sunnycrest Park are transformed into cozy winter lodges! Stop in on the weekends to warm up after exploring the park, hitting the sledding hills, or to sign out winter recreation gear.
