Spent the morning paddling and enjoying my coffee around Hiawatha Lake in Onondaga Park smack dab in the city of Syracuse (at my own risk/wearing pfd!). Syracuse Parks and Rec has kayak rentals at certain times, but you can also bring your own (at your own risk!). I’ll say, it’s a little bit of a pain if you don’t have a lightweight boat because you have to carry it from where your car is parked to the other side of the bath house. Obviously not a problem for me! Being able to explore places like this, either with your own boat or through great city parks programs, definitely gives you a new view of your surroundings.
