(AP/WBEN) Three areas of the Niagara Falls State Park are open again after restoration projects.
State officials say the work included spending $1.8 million at Three Sisters Islands to expand parking and build a new trolley shelter and new facilities for pedestrians. Another $1.1 million was spent on walkways, overlook improvements and other amenities at Luna Island. And there was a $1.7 million renovation of the pedestrian tunnel and high-speed elevators at the Cave of the Winds.
The next phase of work began Friday with groundbreaking on a $4.3 million project to improve Prospect Point.
Most of the money for a $25 million campaign to restore the park comes from the Niagara River Greenway, which is funded by the New York Power Authority.
