The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation today issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking a new agency website design and content management system highlighting the popular system of state parks and historic sites which drew 84.1 million visitors to its properties in 2023.

Once launched, the new website will be a pre-eminent source of information and inspiration for planning travel, spending time in New York's outdoors and discovering its cultural and historic treasures.
