New York Parks Offer Summer Time Fun

As families and individuals look for ways to enjoy the wonderful summer weather, people need to look no further than our local state parks.  July is Park and Recreation Month across the nation and here in New York we have many great reasons to celebrate. 

Our public parks and state lands are among our greatest resources, particularly in upstate, and they fulfill a number of roles.  They are a strong source of tourist dollars, drawing people from other parts of New York, neighboring states, and across the nation.  Along with generating money for the state, our parks also help support many other businesses, from small grocery stores, to souvenir shops selling locally produced keepsakes, to farm stands offering homegrown fruits and vegetables.
