While visiting the New York State Fair this summer be sure to stop at the State Park at the Fair and sample some of our programs in an oasis-like park setting around the reflecting pool in front of the Horticulture Building. While the State Park at the Fair is the smallest park within the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation agency, it offers fun for all ages. It highlights the many interpretive and recreational opportunities available throughout the 180 state parks and 35 state historic sites in New York. Come share hands-on activities and explore interesting demonstrations and exhibits. Our mini-golf course is an annual family favorite.

Learn more about New York's magnificent state parks and historic sites. Meet knowledgeable parks staff who can answer questions, offer trip suggestions, and provide insight for your next adventure. In the gift pavilion you will find unique items for those who love the outdoors. Choose from children's nature collectibles, posters and books, prints, nature inspired jewelry, mini-critters and casual clothing.

The Birds of Prey exhibit features live eagles, hawks, and owls. Come to the State Park Police exhibit and meet the police officers that patrol State Parks and Historic Sites! State Park Police will also have information on boating, personal watercraft safety and recent law changes.

Visit The Great New York State Fair website for more information.
