Prettiest spot in Oswego

Beautiful park. Nice playground, nice path, plenty of spots to sit along the river. Path continues on to fox river trail for several miles. Eagle spotting in winter months.

This is a gorgeous place to go at anytime during the year. The fall and spring are extremely lovely. Many different events are hosted in the park that are always very welcoming to people of all ages. If you just want a beautiful place to take out door pictures this is the place to go and enjoy.

Other than flooding after heavy rains, this park can be visited year-round. The playground is great for the kids, there are multiple gazebos with picnic tables, and even just strolling along the river affords a beautiful view. My favorite time of year to visit is autumn, when all of the trees are changing colors, leaves are blowing around, and it's... More

Great playground, close to downtown library, and a family-friendly setting on the river. The only downside is during spring rains flooding. Otherwise, fantastic events on the river make this place even better.

My kids really enjoy the playground, beautiful paved walkways, picnic areas, and it is next to the Fox River. Our family took our fall pictures there in 2014, they turned out beautifully, especially the ones next to the river.

I go here all the time just to sit and meditate. It is so beautiful. I like to watch the fishermen "fly fish." They go out into the water and just stand there for hours ! Sometimes you can get there during certain times of the year where the larger fish (sorry not sure what kind) will be mating. So... More

Nice play ground for the little ones. Nice relaxing view of the Fox River. Lots of both shaded and sunny areas. You can walk right next to the river if you want to!

Hudson Park is a nice park on the Fox River. There is a fun playground. Also some walking paths along the river. Lots of parking. Can be difficult to get out with all the traffic.

such a beautiful place to go for a restful experience, or maybe a picnic with the family or loved one. it's nice how the village has redone the park. It's also thrilling to go there after a heavy rain and watch all the excitement of how high the water gets. The geese seem to fly by in the fast current.

Hudson Crossing is a beautiful park on the Fox River. Playground equipment is great fun for the kids with a misting spot for the really hot weather. Plenty of room to picnic and the park is located near downtown Oswego where you can shop at interesting and unique stores. Great place to spend the afternoon.
