ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The people who advocate for New York's system of parks and trails are liking what they heard during Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address.

The governor said during his speech Wednesday at the state convention center in Albany that he'll make the revitalization of New York's park system a continuing priority to attract new visitors in 2014. Cuomo also unveiled the "I Love NY" tourism smartphone app that provides geographically targeted tourism, recreation, lodging and dining options in every region of the state.

The Albany-based advocacy group Parks & Trails New York says it applauds the governor's commitment to the state's 179 parks and 35 historic sites as way to spur visitation and economic growth.

The state has spent more than $200 million over the past two years on park restoration projects.
