Greene County police crackdown on overcrowding in public parks


HUNTER, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Kaaterskill Falls has been overcrowded with visitors and has been causing illegal parking issues and unsafe driving conditions.

The town of Hunter is now implementing parking restrictions because of the overcrowding. Visitors who park illegally will be towed at their expense and police are giving out parking tickets.
