DEP Unveils Mapping Tool For Recreation Areas
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection is making it easier — digitally — for the public to find its recreation areas in the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
The DEP’s interactive mapping tool helps the public find more than 400 sites across 130,000 acres of New York City-owned properties that are open for fishing, hiking and other types of recreation. The map also shows New York state lands such as forest preserve and other accessible areas. Users can click each City-owned parcel to see more information. DEP is holding public forums to demonstrate the new mapping tool. The first is June 23 in Livingston Manor in Sullivan County at 7 p.m. Other forums are in Delaware, Putnam and Ulster Counties.
