Parks & Recreation
Oxbow Falls Park, a Madison County Park, consists of 125 acres of land. The park is open to the public year-round from dawn to dusk, and provides opportunites for hiking, picnicking, ball games, and other forms of outdoor recreation.
Three waterfalls are located on the park. Water drops approximately 100 feet from the highest falls. Clockville Creek, the braided stream providing the water to these falls originates from Nichols Pond in the Town of Fenner.
The sharp change in elevation allows for excellent views north-ward across the Oneida Lake Plain and on to Lake Ontario. Limestone outcropping in the upper portion of the park is the northern most edge of the Helderberg Escarpment, which formed during the Devonian Period 400 to 350 million years ago.
