HISTORICAL INFORMATION: In 1898, the landscape of Lower Onondaga Park was described as "...natural earth works [which] reveal the contribution of man's aesthetic nature to those who seek rejuvenating tonic for the spirit and glorious treat for the eye." Edged by the meandering Onondaga Creek, the 15.6 acres of Lower Onondaga Park were originally designed by renowned landscape architect George Kessler, in 1907, as a park pleasure ground, and many of the impressive trees are as originally planted. The neo-classical greenhouse in which many of the plants used in our parks are grown stands amidst the rusticity of a stone bridge arch and spray fountain. The park also contains a Little League diamond, sunken gardens and grottos with pools and fountains, and a well which supplies Hiawatha Lake with its water.
