DescriptionThe New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation has had a land classification system in place since 1972. This system was developed during the creation of the first Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan. This system has become the backbone of the Park Master Planning Process. During the past few years the New York State Park System has undergone serious evaluation. This evaluation determined that the Parkland Classification System is out of date and no longer addresses today's need or issues. This paper attempts to illustrate how the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) is approaching the redesign of their Recreational Land Classification System.
