Artpark, Ft. Niagara and Joseph Davis State Park seeking private partners
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced today that three requests for proposals (RFPs) have been released to solicit private development partners at Artpark, Ft. Niagara and Joseph Davis State Parks.
The three parks -all located along the Niagara River-- present an opportunity to create a recreational corridor that would enhance tourism opportunities by increasing recreational offerings. Activities such as outfitting and orienting visitors for hiking, cycling, birding, fishing, and similar outdoor recreation pursuits and supporting recreational facilities are all viable options for prospective bidders to consider. Respondents may also propose portable, mobile, seasonal, or other temporary concessions and facilities that offer other recreation activities in the Park.
For more information or to receive a copy of the RFPs please contact State Parks' Concessions Management Bureau at email@example.com or 518.486.2932.
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation oversees more than 250 parks, historic sites, recreational trails, golf courses, boat launches and more, which are visited by 71 million people annually. A recent study found that New York State Parks generates $5 billion in park and visitor spending, which supports nearly 54,000 jobs and over $2.8 billion in additional state GDP.
