State budget takes its toll on state parks


   No swimming at Woodlawn Beach and Lake Erie state parks.

   Shorter seasons at campgrounds, including Letchworth State Park.

   Shorter hours and closures for attractions in Niagara Falls State Park.

   These are just some of the effects state budget cuts will have on parks facilities across Western New York, authorities have announced.

   Parks officials said they attempted to focus the operations changes outside the main tourist season, at off-peak hours and where alternative facilities are available nearby.

   What do you think of the changes residents will see at state parks this year?
