A popular state park that offers panoramic views of the Albany area has opened its new $4.3 million visitor’s center to introduce folks to the park's trails and to provide environmental education. 

A ceremony to officially open the 8,240-square-foot  Thacher State Park Center was held Thursday. State parks commissioner Rose Harvey says the new center will help showcase the park.
