FENTON, N.Y. (AP) - The state will spend more than $2 million to improve the beach and swim areas at a central New York park.

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul (HOH’-kuhl) and state parks Commissioner Rose Harvey announced earlier this week that the $2.2 million project will begin after the 2017 swim season at Chenango Valley State Park, located in the Broome County town of Fenton, just north of Binghamton.

The project includes installing hydro-engineered technology that will improve water circulation and quality and building a new splash pad area, playground and volleyball and basketball courts.

The park features two lakes, Lily and Chenango, along with woodland trails, fishing, an 18-hole golf course and 184 campsites and 24 cabins.

The upgrades are part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s ongoing initiative to improve the state’s 180 parks and 35 historic sites.
