Beaver Island State Park is a New York state park located in the town of Grand Island in northwestern Erie County, New York. The historic summer home of Lewis Allen, the uncle of US President Grover Cleveland is within the park. The park is on the bank of the Niagara River, at the southern end of Grand Island.

The park offers a beach, picnic tables with pavilions, recreation programs, a nature trail, seasonal waterfowl hunting, fishing and ice-fishing, sledding, cross-country skiing, cross country running, snowshoeing, sledding and snowmobiling, a boat launch with marina and dockage, and a food concession. The park's nature center is open from noon to 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The park features a USGA-recognized championship 18-hole, par-72 public golf course. The course stretches 6,779 yards. The course is open from mid-April until mid-November, weather permitting.

In 1999, the 18-hole, 4,000-yard-long Blue Heron Disc golf course opened.


Beaver Island Parkway

Beaver Island Parkway (also known as South Parkway) is a 2.72-mile long parkway connecting Beaver Island State Park to Interstate 190 (the Niagara Section of the New York State Thruway) and New York State Route 324 near the South Grand Island Bridge. This roadway is a four-lane divided expressway, and there are no driveways leading to and from the roadway. However, there are at-grade intersections along the route. The parkway is within the jurisdiction of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation but is maintained and inventoried by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) as New York State Route 957B, an unsigned reference route.[1]

All junctions on the route, excluding those with West River Parkway and I-190, are at-grade intersections. At the northern end of the parkway near East River Road, an additional ramp connects to I-190 northbound via NY 324 westbound and Staley Road.
