From New York State’s press release:
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced New York has committed $2.5 million to build or improve fourteen playgrounds at State Parks across New York. This funding is part of the Governor’s goal to modernize 100 State Park playgrounds by 2020. … State Parks will replace outdated playgrounds at parks with modern, code-compliant equipment and in distinct areas for young and older age groups. Playground improvements will be coupled with site improvements, including shade trees or canopies, seating, water fountains and trail/walkway connections to the rest of the park.
Taughannock Falls State Park is on the list! The playground at South Point is not old by many standards, so I wonder if the funding will be used to improve North Point’s playground, or provide something near the marina. Regardless, it’s great news for area kids and for the park.
