Several local state parks are about to get a facelift.
On Earth Day, which was Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the state will spend $90 million to improve parks and historic sites.
Thacher Park will see nearly $4 million of that.
The money will go toward creating a flagship visitor's center.
Renovations are also planned for Peebles Island and Saratoga Spa State Parks as well as the Olana State Historic Site.
This is third year of what the governor’s office calls a “sustained commitment” to improve the park system through the New York Work’s program.
Over the past two years, the program has pumped $265 million into 81 state parks and sites.
