Niagara County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Adoption and Implementation of a Master Plan/EIS for Joseph Davis State Park. The action involves the Master Plan for Joseph Davis State Park. The plan provides long term guidance for the development and management of the park and protection of its resources. The Master Plan calls for the designation of portions of the park, primarily in the Eastern Area as a Bird Conservation Area. This area will also be a resource for environmental interpretation through construction of an innovative trail system. The plan calls for a major new play feature that may include water features. A new comfort station will also be constructed. The former pool will be filled in and pool complex buildings will be adaptively reused for construction of a Nature Center with an emphasis on birds of prey under a partnership agreement with the Buffalo Audubon Society. Pond enhancement to improve boating and fishing opportunities, and a portable ice skating rink are also identified in this area of the park. In the Riverside area, improvements will include a new picnic shelter and playground, enhanced views of the river, improved circulation and access to the Niagara River for fishing, and a Seaway Trail rest area on Lower River Road. The Master Plan/EIS identifies potential environmental impacts and ways in which adverse impacts will be mitigated. The project is located between the Niagara River and the Robert Moses Parkway on the north side of the Town of Lewiston in Niagara County.
