Cazenovia Park is connected to South Park by Red Jacket and McKinley Parkways. At 83 acres, is traversed by a creek of the same name.
Designed: 1892-1894 by Olmsted, Olmsted & Eliot | Location: Bordered by Cazenovia Street, Seneca Street, Potters & Abbott Road
The Olmsted firm (which included Olmsted’s son, John C. Olmsted) proposed it be damned to create a 20-acre recreational lake, and for many years, it was popular year-round with boaters and skaters. In addition, the designers included a bandstand and play fields and called for the planting of many trees to shade the empty landscape.
Today, the lake is gone, but the trees have flourished and the playing fields and other facilities attract many to the park. Significant features of Cazenovia Park, include the Cazenovia Casino (designed by the Buffalo firm of Esenwein & Johnson and completed in 1912) and the Shelter House (built in 1902 and restored in 2016).
