state parks

John Weeks talks with director of recreation and public programs, Bob Geraci, about the different parks in Onondaga county. They address how the various parks are classified and different activities that go on at each one. 

The Oneida Improvement Committee has received a grant, which the organization says will help promote efforts to build an 11-mile multi-use trail network surrounding the city.

Committee member Patti Meakin says the $1,500 grant from Parks and Trails New York will be used to communicate with the public and solicit donations.

While the heavy rains in central and northern New York caused flooding last week, the region's state parks, for the most part, are up and running.

That's good news with the busy Independence Day holiday weekend upon us.

While a handful of state parks in central New York were forced to close their gates last week when heavy rains caused flooding, state parks office spokesman Randy Simons says all but one site has reopened.

The site that's still closed is the boat launch on Canadarago Lake in Otsego County.
