Otsiningo Park / Otsiningo North

Built by the New York State Department of Transportation and leased, improved and maintained by Broome County Parks Department, Otsiningo provides a refreshing interlude close to the urban core. Named for one of the many 18th century Native American words for the lower Chenango River Valley, Otsiningo Park land was once inhabited by peoples of several Indian nations. With its easily-reached centralized location, easy-to-walk paved trails, and a specially-designed ADA-compliant playground, Otsiningo Park offers opportunities for all to enjoy a day at the park.

Otsiningo North


The shared efforts of Broome County and the Town of Chenango transformed the former Riverfront Park into Otsiningo North. Paved trails provide access to and from Otsiningo Park, extending opportunities for bicyclists and walkers entering from either Bevier St. or Upper Front St. 

Otsiningo North boasts an extensive soccer field complex. Reservations for fields at Otsiningo North may be made at www.townofchenango.com
