You can expect the parks in Erie County to look a bit nicer in the future thanks to some major investments.
The Erie County Department of Parks and Recreation announced Tuesday that they're making improvements to some of the parks.
Millions of dollars will be invested into restoring the Wendt Beach Park mansion and the horse stables in Derby. There's also plans for improvements on the historic WPA structures in Emery in South Wales and Ellicott Creek Park in Tonawanda.
Erie County is also working with Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper to improve public access to waterways by building things like kayak launches.
They've just finished up at Red Jacket Park and will move to Seneca Bluffs and Higgins Park in Buffalo.
“With the investments we're making with our partners across Erie County Parks, there's no better time to be enjoying your Erie County Parks,” Troy Schinzel, commissioner of Erie County Parks, Recreation, and Forestry, said.
The county is currently in the design phase for most of its projects, but you can expect to see those improvements in the coming years.
