Parks? Who needs them? Or so it would seem some of the State of New York’s legislators apparently believe. Faced with a huge $8.2B deficit, the State recently announced plans to either close or vastly curtail services in 100 of its 213 State Parks. Among those on the chopping block are Hunts Pond and Bowman Lake. While the former is primarily a wilderness, low-impact park, Bowman is a recreational campsite facility used by hundreds each year.
