Looking for a beautiful location for your next photoshoot? Make sure to consider Upper Onondaga Park in Syracuse, New York. This location is stunning at any time of the year but ideal for summer evenings when the plants are rich and green, the fountain is on, and the mini-waterfall is in full force ( did I say mini- waterfall? YES!). This park is perfect for families with little ones with lots of space for running around but also has a very romantic and intimate feel with its stone bridge and flowy willow trees, perfect for couples or maternity pictures. There is a large gazebo on the water as well as a boat launch that both give lots of options for scenery!
There are many entrances to the park, and I usually prefer to park on a side street near the waterfall to walk into the park that direction. You can find a walking path around the entire park with lots of joggers and pups exploring the surroundings in the beautiful weather.
