Our Experience

When we went to Onondaga lake park we both went to Willow Bay to work on a story we have been writing. The view of the Lake from the shore was breathtaking. We also rented bikes at the playground and the sights were amazing and the variety of bikes were awesome. We also had a honor to also see some of the lights on the lake being set up as well
