Visiting the Park in Winter
Upstate New York winters bring cold temperatures, snow, ice, and wind. Please use caution when driving to and around the park as the weather often creates poor driving conditions in the area. In cold temperatures walk carefully on sidewalks and pavement in and around the park as the surfaces may become icy and slippery.
If you plan on enjoying the region by exploring the Cayuga-Seneca Canal, make sure you follow proper water safety. Check your water craft to ensure it is good condition to use and always wear a United States Coast Guard approved, properly-sized life jacket. Follow proper etiquette and rules for safe boating. The waterways are a great way to discover the region's history and natural beauty when done safely.
