Onondaga Lake Park includes the Salt Museum and a replica of the Jesuit mission called Sainte Marie among the Iroquois. This a picture of the lake. As you tell the lake is very dark blue and polluted. But the lake is a very pretty place to be.

All about the lake

Onondaga lake has been called one of the most polluted lake in the country, but it wasn't always this way. In the late 1800's the lake was known for exceptional fishing,boating,swimming and the grand resorts on its shores. This is the story of how Onondaga lake went from public treasure to dumping ground in just 100 years,and how today it has shown resurgence to its former glory
