Governor Paterson is attempting to close down our numerous New York State Parks, including Western New York's Woodlawn Beach State Park and Knox Farms.
-Our State Parks and historic sites generate almost $2 Billion in economic activity each year
-For each $1 NYS spends on our parks, we get back $5 dollars in revenue
-During this recession State Parks provide cheap, fun activities for New York's families, something they need now more than ever
-These might be tough economic times, but closing parks will only further hurt New York's economcy
