About Us

The Town of Onondaga Parks & Recreation Department has four town parks totaling over 50 acres of developed parkland.  These parks are located within special park districts supported by taxes collected from within each district.   Parks are officially open from May 1-October 31, 8:00 AM - dusk.  Permits for use of the parks, including a pavilion and/or shelter areas, and field or court use, are issued through the Parks & Recreation Office.

Town residents can reserve a pavilion beginning April 1. Non-residents can apply beginning May 1.  

Groups/organizations need to be located within the Town of Onondaga to be given resident status. A group member that is a resident does not count.  

All permits require a fee and security deposit. Fees depend on residency, group size, and desired use.  

Although all parks have restrooms, they are only open when there is a permit, or when we have a scheduled program held at that site. Otherwise, the bathrooms will be locked.  

You may call the office to inquire for availability, however, actual reservations can be made only when accompanied by a completed form of payment or online at our website: townofonondagarecreation.com.
