This study focused upon the New York State Urban Cultural Park System (UCP) . An urban cultural park is a designated historical area in a community which has been revitalized to interpret the community's role in the cultural development of the region and state. Unlike typical green space "parks", the UCP will include the areas where residents work, live and play- The roles of Cultural Tourism and Tourism Development in the UCP were investigated. Interviews of individuals involved in the planning, development and implementation of the UCP were conducted. Site visitations were conducted to several of the UCP communities. The UCP model does have applications to Tourism Development.
