(Albany, NY) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo is announcing the addition of 400 acres to Schunnemunk State Park in Orange County.
The property was purchased from the Open Space Institute and will expand hiking trails, preserve scenic views and protect the area's natural habitat. Now at more than 33-hundred acres, Schunnemunk State Park offers ridge-top views of the Hudson Highlands to the east and the Shawangunks and Catskills to the west. The new parcel was paid for by the Environmental Protection Fund, which is covered under the 2017-2018 state budget.
