Letchworth State Park Portageville Entrance Reopens

After nearly three years, the Letchworth State Park Portageville entrance is open to traffic again. And that’s not all.
What’s new is a straightened Park Road at the entrance, restoration along a couple of trails, restoration of the stairs to the upper and middle falls, new plantings and a new parking lot.

About 400 people showed up to take part in a walk to end Alzheimer’s disease Saturday in Allegany. It was the third annual Southern Tier Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Saturday’s event was their first effort at fundraising – they raised $100 for the Walk and plan to fundraise for other organizations this year.
