Pennsylvania funding 3 new state parks, locations yet to be determined, Governor Tom Wolf announced

HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Pennsylvania governor tweeted he had “big news” Tuesday, announcing that the state budget passed in recent days includes funding for three new state parks.

Gov. Tom Wolf’s press secretary, Beth Rementer, subsequently said the park sites had not yet been selected, but the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources was working to identify and purchase the land.

The state’s 2022-23 spending plan calls for $56 million to add the new state parks to a system that currently has 121 parks.

The three will be the first new state parks in Pennsylvania since 2005, not counting Washington Crossing, which was transferred by the State Historical and Museum Commission.

The money will also help develop the state’s first park for the use of ATVs and similar motorized recreational vehicles.

“Our beautiful state parks are among the finest in the nation,” Wolf tweeted. “I’m proud that we secured the funding in this year’s budget to make this investment in our parking system.”
