This weekend I went to Otsiningo Park. The park, which is named after “one of the many 18th century Native American words for the lower Chenango River Valley,” is definitely a place to check out over the summer.
Otsiningo park is exactly what it sounds like; a public park. It offers picnic benches, running trails, and scenic views all year. Along with the basic amenities, it also has grills, multiple sports fields that people can easily rent out, and picnic shelters that can hold up to 100 people.
When I went I mostly sat at a picnic table by the pond, to soak in the nice weather. The park is definitely well-maintained and it’s certainly a place that I would recommend as a picnic venue.
In August, Otsiningo Park is also home to the Binghamton Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally. The festival, which is a three-day event, boasts over 40 hot air balloons, live music, and plenty of food.
Otsiningo Park is open from dawn to dusk year-round and is completely free! For more information visit http://www.gobroomecounty.com/parks/otsiningo
