Governor Cuomo has announced a $3.1 million park to help revitalize downtown and get more use out of an underused highway ramp.
According to the Times Union, Cuomo said in a news release. "Elevated parks attract walkers, runners and cyclists, while boosting tourism in surrounding communities, and with the addition of this new attraction, we look forward to welcoming everyone to the Capital Region to experience the Skyway for years to come."
We look forward to the start of this project and we encourage residents of the Capital Region to really get involved in this project and make it a staple for our community for years to come. If you live in or near Downtown Albany, this could make a big difference for you, but do you think it's the best use of state funds? I think the park will be great, but we need so many different things!
