State Parks Seeking Partners at Woodlawn Beach

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has released a request for proposals (RFP) for private-sector businesses to provide services at Woodlawn Beach State Park.

The park, which has been managed by the Town of Hamburg for the past 10 years, is seeking partners to provide programming as well as food and beverage opportunities throughout the park, including the existing special event space.

Woodlawn Beach State Park is located on the eastern-most terminus of Lake Erie within the Buffalo metropolitan area. Featuring a one-mile long natural sand beach with the region's best sunsets, the park also supports a diversity of wildlife habitats including one of the finest freshwater sand dune areas remaining on Lake Erie. The event center/bathhouse complex is connected to the beach by a boardwalk that highlights the unique natural aspects of the park.

The request for proposal may be obtained free of charge by emailing or downloading documents from the New York State Contract Reporter website:
