Park description

Reservoir State Park is situated within the boundaries of the Robert Moses Niagara Hydroelectric Power Plant property. The park is owned and financially supported by the New York Power Authority and operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.[2]

The park offers picnic tables with pavilions, a playground, a nature trail, hiking, biking, fishing, cross-country skiing, sledding, snowmobiling, and fields for model airplane flying. The park also includes three tennis courts, eight baseball diamonds, two basketball courts, and a roller hockey court.[4]

A $6 million improvement project, funded by the New York Power Authority under an agreement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, was completed at the park in 2012. The project focused on refurbishing many of the park's sports fields, improving accessibility at the park's playground and constructing a warming hut near the sledding hill.[2]
