Park Minute: A Tour of Ithaca’s Views

Winner, best “short subject” cablecast in 2013 on Ithaca, NY’s public access TV!

Ithaca, NY is known for its beautiful natural surroundings. Situated at the south end of Cayuga Lake, the longest of the eleven Finger Lakes in central New York, and surrounded by hills with farms, forests, gorges, and waterfalls, Ithaca is blessed with unusually high quality scenery. The Town of Ithaca, which surrounds the City, and its Conservation Board have established a scenic route on roads throughout the town and has published a map and guide that are free to the public, either in paper at Town Hall on Tioga Street in downtown Ithaca and at the Tompkins County Visitors Center on East Shore Drive, or as a downloadable pdf from the Town website.

This episode of Park Minute (#8) takes us on a quick trip along the scenic route. See episode #57 of Walk in the Park TV for a more in-depth exploration of this trip and the many sights along the way. And check out other episodes of Park Minute.

Our popular book, Ithaca–the City, Gorges, and Colleges, is now available as an ebook online! Check out the sample pages!
