Niagara Falls improvements unveiled
Niagara Falls, N.Y. (AP) - The multi-million-dollar improvements made to New York's most-visited state park have been unveiled, while the next phase of the renovations begin.
Local media outlets report that state and local officials gathered Wednesday at Prospect Point at the edge of the American Falls in Niagara Falls State Park to celebrate the completion of the more than $4 million upgrade to some areas of the park.
The state is spending $25 million to spruce up the park located along the American Falls in the city of Niagara Falls. The next phase will include improving the trails along the lower Niagara Gorge.
The project started after a 2011 New York Times article called the park "shabby."
With 8 million visitors a year, Niagara Falls State Park is the most-visited state park in New York.
