Originally called North Park, this three-mile preserve of forested river gorge was renamed Seneca (which means “stone”).  Another of Frederick Law Olmsted’s works of living art, Seneca Park features Trout Lake which was created by damming a natural spring. Swan boats, propelled by drivers who pedaled the boats like bicycles, carried visitors around the lake until 1922.
