Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced more than $100 million in total has been invested at Jones Beach and took the inaugural zip line ride at WildPlay, which opens this season at Jones Beach State Park.
The funding comes in celebration of the 90th anniversary summer season at Jones Beach.
This new outdoor adventure space includes zip lines, aerial adventure courses, and a 40-foot-drop jump.
Jones Beach State Park will celebrate its 90th summer with a series of events, including the annual Fourth of July fireworks display and a discounted parking fee on August 4.
The park will also see more in recreational, aesthetic and infrastructure improvements over the next year including the opening of the new Meadowbrook Parkway Gateway 3.
