Funds allocated to upgrade state parks


BEAR MOUNTAIN – State money has been
targeted to modernize its parks around New York.
Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey came to Bear Mountain State Park Tuesday to announce the funding for specific projects that she said will bring the parks into the 21st century.
“It’s about restoring its historic and environmental, natural grandeur and within the context of that modernizing it, making it more relevant for our 62 million visitors and making it energy, climate resilient and always operationally sustainable,” Harvey said.
In the Mid-Hudson Valley, some $14 million will be spent on 19 projects including three at Bear Mountain State Park, two at Harriman State Park, one at James Baird State Park, one at John Jay Homestead State Historic Site, two at Mills-Norrie State Park, one at Nyack Beach State Park, one at Staatsburgh State Historic Site, three at Walkway Over the Hudson State Park, one at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site, and one at Olana State Historic Site.
