Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy was in Western New York yesterday, discussing the possibilities for a new entrance to Niagara Falls State Park, one that will have a radically different look after a one-mile stretch of the Robert Moses Parkway is ripped out.

According to planners, the future of the park could include such activities as horseback riding, zip lining and snowboarding.

The funding for the new project comes from the Buffalo Billion. Duffy said the money isn't being thrown at the problem quickly.

The project will impact the roadway from John B. Daly Boulevard to the state park, and will open access to the water.
