ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced Monday the opening of a new gateway entrance at Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion State Historic Park.

The park’s new entrance is marked by stone columns off State Route 21 in Canandaigua. The project also improved pathways, expanded parking, and added a new garden and trees.

The $1.1 million project is the first phase of a $6.1 million effort by State Parks and the Friends of Sonnenberg to renovate a former armory into a new visitors’ center, café, and educational space.
