Long Branch Park is a public park in Onondaga County outside of Syracuse, New York, located in the town of Geddes, New York on Long Branch Road near NYS Route 370 and John Glenn Boulevard. The park is situated on the northern shore of Onondaga Lake and is often misidentified as an extension of Onondaga Lake Park which wraps around the eastern shore of the lake to the south shore.

Founded in 1882 by Ben and George Maurer, Long Branch Amusement Park was originally an amusement park with boxing arenas, an arcade and a trolley. The amusement park closed in 1938.

Syracuse's largest mall, Destiny USA is located to the south of the lake and features an original carousel #18 from the amusement park.
