Clinton Square, in downtown Syracuse, New York, was the original town center and first came into existence in the early 19th century where roadways from north and south convened. By 1825, the construction of the Erie Canal further transformed the busy intersection into the center of commerce and trade in Central New York.Make Clinton Square part of your personalized Syracuse itinerary using our Syracuse trip itinerary website.

Worked a festival there this summer when they drained the fountain. very beautiful location with some incredible architecture around it. My advice for the city is that they build a smaller fountain in the middle so that when they drain the big fountain for festivals and events, there is still a little place for people to stay cool and dip their feet in, and a centerpiece to decorate with Christmas lights and skate around in the winter. Just a thought.
Cute little green space in downtown Syracuse. Turns into a nice ice rink in the winter and acts as a small park in the warmer, greener seasons. It's also nice to grab a cone of ice cream and enjoy the city views and skyline. It's also in a good central location to many eateries and stores!
