Some favorite day-trip destinations in Central New York may have to be crossed off families’ lists following severe storms.

Sections of several New York State parks in the region are closed for the rest of the season because of damage caused by heavy rains and flooding earlier this month.

State parks officials say most of the damage in the Finger Lakes region occurred in the area of the Robert H. Treman State Park in Ithaca. About 5 inches of rain fell there, causing thousands of dollars in damage to a road, trails and the swimming area.  The swimming area is closed for the rest of the summer.

Buttermilk Falls and Taughannock Falls State Parks also sustained damage.
