“I Love My Park Day” Registration Opens

ALBANY – New York state parks, historic sites and campgrounds hosted another successful season, according to Gov. Cuomo. 65.3 Million people visited NYS parks in 2015 with an increase of 5 % since 2014 and nearly 14% percent since the Governor took office in 2011. Cuomo said, “More and more people are discovering that New York’s state parks are home to unparalleled natural beauty and a wealth of recreational activities.” Rose Harvey, Commissioner of the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation stated, “Governor Cuomo continues to lead the transformation of our park system with his NY Parks 2020 plan to invest $900M in public and private dollars to modernize our state park system.” Gov. Cuomo pointed out that the increased attendance numbers are proof that the efforts to promote New York’s natural assets have been a success. Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul encourages New Yorkers to help their parks prepare for another successful season by taking part in the statewide “I Love My Park Day” volunteer cleanup effort May 7th. Hochul stated, “I Love My Park Day is the perfect opportunity for those who enjoy the parks to demonstrate just how much they care for these special places.” Online registration is now open for the fifth annual “I Love My Park Day” at more than 100 state parks and historic sites across the State.
