New York State To Close Parks

From the East Aurora Advertisor:

Knox Farm State Park, located just outside the Village of East Aurora, is one of 41 state parks recommended for closure by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation under a plan announced by Governor David Paterson on Fri., Feb. 19. The proposal, part of an effort to shrink the state’s $8.2 billion budget gap, has already prompted an outcry in the East Aurora area, and among the users of parks around New York.
