Nice picnic spot!

The person who waited on us in the bread shop recommended this place for a picnic. Could imagine it being fantastic in the summer, with beachfront views and even a treehouse!

I haven't been for awhile, but this lovely park on the lake is hard to beat for sunbathing, a picnic or watching the sun set over the Adirondacks.

This park is HUGE! This is a very fun place to hang out during the summer and early fall. There are beaches, woods, and open green space all connected by well paved paths. The is a treehouse that has nice views of the forest. Very fun!

I've spent so many happy days at Oakledge. It's where I taught my dog how to play frisbee, where I would take a dip on a hot day, jump off a cliff when feeling adventurous, and played softball and kickball many times. It's also a cool spot for snowshoeing and if it's cold enough you can skate right off the... More

This is not an over crowded beach. Its very clean. It runs just off from the bike path .. Off from Flynn Ave. near Pine St. It has a nice picnic area and is under cover.

As an employee of the city, I may be a bit one-sided in my review, but I can say that I have taken many many trips to Oakledge park. I have brought groups of children in all seasons and Seniors in fall and spring. There is a swimming beach, stand up paddling (for a fee) in summer, great views, an... More

We stumbled upon this gem when we went to rent SUPs for the day. Inexpensive day parking rate, bocce courts, beach area, plenty of open space for soccer games or family/friends to gather. Lots of people walking or riding their bikes along the paved paths.

Feels a bit more raw than Water Front where you can find locals bath, sunbath, fish, play various field games or just throw a picnic. Great view of the lake. Don't miss the treehouse ;)
