OLeno State Park is a state park located in Leno and Skaneateles counties, New York. The park was opened to the public on May 28, 2016 after it had been closed since 2011 due to budget cuts and the need for maintenance repairs. It is named after former New York State Senator Daniel P. Lenox.
At an elevation of 1,225 feet (369 m), Mount Tom serves as a scenic landmark for the park.
