State Parks Reminds Visitors That Social Distancing Measures Are In EffectThe New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (State Parks) reminds visitors that measures to reduce park density and maintain social distance are in effect. Visitors should be familiar with social distancing guidelines when visiting the outdoors and have an alternative plan ready if they arrive at a park that has reached capacity or appears crowded.
State Parks has reduced the number of available parking spaces, and many parks will close to incoming traffic by noon. Illegally parked vehicles will be ticketed and may be towed.
For the safety of all visitors, please wear a face covering when you cannot maintain social distance.
Please recreate locally, practice social distancing, and use common sense to protect yourself and others.

We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate this pandemic together. Thank you.

We are asking all park-goers to use additional precautions to protect their health and safety and that of others around them.
Our parks are still open. While solo exercise is ok, team sports are not permitted in the parks at this time. Please maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others when outside and avoid congregating in groups.
