Park Information

This 577 acre park is ideal for hiking, bird watching and cross-country skiing. The park also has a baseball diamond, soccer field,  tennis courts, playgrounds and youth camping area.  It has one of our two legal off-leash Dog Parks in the County Park system.  Greece Canal Park offers three lodges and one shelter.

Each lodge includes an oven, refrigerator, folding tables & chairs, and indoor, flush toilet facilities. Outside, they have a charcoal grill, though the charcoal is not provided. The open-air shelter holds 80 people, has picnic tables, a grill, and electricity.
