MASSENA— The New York Power Authority (NYPA) is providing a total of nine information kiosks at local recreational sites.  The information kiosks provide a map of the recreation facilities (local and state parks) within the project boundary of NYPA’s St. Lawrence-FDR Power Project.  The kiosks also list amenities at each site.  Kiosks have been installed at the following areas:

                     Waddington:     Whittaker Park.

                     Louisville:         Coles Creek Car-Top Launch and Sandy Beach.

                     Massena:         Massena Intake Boat Launch and the new Hawkins Point Boat Launch.

Additional kiosks will be installed at Sand Island, at each end of the trail between Whalen Park and Massena Country Club, and another at scenic Island View Park.

To aid boaters, a chart of the St. Lawrence River will be displayed on the kiosks at Whittaker Park, Massena Intake, Island View Park and Hawkins Point. 

For the outdoor enthusiasts, trail maps will be posted at Whittaker Park, Massena Intake, Island View, Sand Island, and Whalen Park.

All kiosks will have the hours of operation and municipal contact information for the recreational site where they are located.  In addition, each kiosk will have NYPA contact information.
