唐纳德 J. 特朗普州立公园是一个占地 436 英亩（1.8 平方公里）的州立公园，位于纽约州威彻斯特县和普特南县的约克镇和普特南山谷镇。
该公园由开发商和未来的美国总统唐纳德特朗普于 2006 年捐赠给纽约州的财产组成。 由于预算限制，公园的维护工作于 2010 年停止，公园大部分仍未开发。 大部分建筑物已被拆除； 只剩下几个地基和现有的网球场。 曾多次呼吁重新命名公园。
历史[编辑] 特朗普于 1998 年购买了该物业，并计划建造一个价值 1000 万美元的私人高尔夫球场。 它总计 250 万美元，分两部分购买：Indian Hill 以 175 万美元和 French Hill 以 750,000 美元购买。  这片土地包含大量湿地，开发面临严格的环境限制和许可要求。  他在 2006 年捐赠了它，因为他无法获得城镇批准开发该物业。 当时特朗普声称包裹价值 1 亿美元。  他将这笔捐款用作税收减免。  此次捐赠受到州长乔治·帕塔基 (George Pataki) 的赞扬。 特朗普说，“我希望这 436 英亩的土地能变成世界上最美丽的公园之一。”
纽约州于 2010 年 2 月宣布公园因预算削减而关闭。  有人质疑关闭是否有必要，因为公园的运营预算每年只有 2,500 美元，并且由附近的富兰克林·罗斯福州立公园的工人维护。  尽管特朗普在宣布关闭后威胁要收回公园用地， 但该土地仍由纽约州公园、娱乐和历史保护办公室控制。 
2010 年，试图将公园的 French Hill 部分改建为狗公园的尝试表明，公园的至少一栋废弃建筑中含有石棉。  到 2012 年，计划中的狗公园由于难以为围栏和石棉清除筹集资金而搁置。 
该公园未在纽约州公园、娱乐和历史保护办公室公园定位器中列出， 尽管附近的 Taconic State Parkway 沿线的标志将游客引导至 Donald J. Trump 州立公园。  在 Rachel Maddow Show 的 2015 年访问期间，没有任何近期维护的迹象； 取而代之的是，人们发现这片可公开访问的土地包含摇摇欲坠的涂鸦建筑、空荡荡的地图亭和杂草丛生的停车场。 
2017 年，The A.V. 网站上的一篇文章。 俱乐部将公园描述为“废弃的荒地”，有“泥泞的田野、杂草丛生的网球场和破旧的建筑”，还有一个年久失修的游泳池。 
改名提议[编辑] 2015 年底，州参议员 Daniel Squadron 提出了一项“除特朗普法案之外的任何法案”来更改公园的名称。  民选官员提出了一些改名建议。 议员查尔斯·D·拉文 (Charles D. Lavine) 建议公园以彼得·塞勒姆 (Peter Salem) 的名字命名，彼得·塞勒姆是一位在美国独立战争中服役的非裔美国人，一些历史学家认为他是穆斯林， 而该地区的美国代表肖恩·帕特里克·马洛尼 (Sean Patrick Maloney) 建议 公园以民谣歌手皮特西格的名字命名。  作为回应，特朗普建议纽约州将公园的土地归还给他。  2016 年初，活动组织“People for the Pete Seeger State Park”在 Change.org 上发起请愿，继续努力在 Pete Seeger 之后重新命名公园。 
2017 年 9 月，纽约第 25 届议会选区代表、民主党人 Nily Rozic 建议重新命名公园，以纪念 Heather Heyer，Heather Heyer 在弗吉尼亚州夏洛茨维尔抗议 Unite the Right 集会时死于撞车袭击。 没有对公园进行更名，该提议在很大程度上被忽略了。  Rozic 与纽约州参议员 Brad Hoylman 于 2018 年重新立法重新命名公园，但未能通过委员会。 他们在 2019 年再次立法，重新命名公园。 
在 2021 年美国国会大厦袭击事件发生后，有人重新尝试重新命名公园，并且在 Sojourner Truth（附近阿尔斯特县的本地人）获得超过 160,000 个签名后重新命名公园的在线请愿书。  纽约州女议员桑迪·加莱夫 (Sandy Galef) 认为，该州应该推进更改公园名称的工作，她认为“特朗普先生没有与该州签署适当的文件，因此任何违约索赔都没有实际意义。” Galef 呼吁将公园重新命名，以纪念在该地区长大的前纽约共和党州长乔治·帕塔基 (George Pataki)。
Donald J. Trump State Park
is a 436-acre (1.8 km2) state park in the towns of Yorktown and Putnam Valley in Westchester and Putnam counties, New York. The park consists of property that was donated to New York State in 2006 by developer and future President of the United States Donald Trump. Maintenance of the park was halted in 2010 due to budget constraints, and the park remains largely undeveloped. Most of the buildings have been demolished; only a few foundations and the existing tennis court remain. There have been several calls to rename the park.
History Trump purchased the property in 1998 with plans to build a $10 million private golf course. Totalling $2.5 million, it was purchased in two sections: Indian Hill for $1.75 million and French Hill for $750,000. The land contained significant wetlands and development faced strict environmental restrictions and permitting requirements. He donated it in 2006 after he was unable to gain town approvals to develop the property. At that time Trump claimed the parcel was worth $100 million. He used the donation as a tax write-off. The donation was praised by governor George Pataki. Trump said, "I hope that these 436 acres of property will turn into one of the most beautiful parks anywhere in the world.” New York State announced the park's closure due to budget cuts in February 2010. It was questioned whether the closure was necessary since the operating budget for the park was only $2,500 a year and it was maintained by workers from the nearby Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park. Although Trump threatened to take the parkland back after the closure was announced, the land remains in the control of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. An attempt to convert a portion of the park's French Hill section for use as a dog park in 2010 revealed that at least one of the park's abandoned buildings contained asbestos. By 2012, the planned dog park remained on hold due to difficulties raising funds for fences and asbestos abatement. The park is not listed at the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation park locator, although signs along the nearby Taconic State Parkway direct visitors to Donald J. Trump State Park. During a 2015 visit by The Rachel Maddow Show, there were no signs of any recent upkeep; instead, the publicly accessible land was found to contain crumbling graffiti-covered buildings, empty map kiosks, and weed-choked parking lots. In 2017, an article on website The A.V. Club framed the park as an "abandoned wasteland", with "muddy fields, overgrown tennis courts, and dilapidated buildings" and a swimming pool in disrepair. Park access improvements including an asphalt driveway, gravel parking lot, entrance gates, wood fencing, and native tree and shrub plantings were noticed in 2020. Proposals to rename In late 2015, State Senator Daniel Squadron introduced an "Anything but Trump Act" to change the park's name. Several suggestions for a name change were offered by elected officials. Assemblyman Charles D. Lavine suggested that the park be named for Peter Salem, an African American who served in the American Revolutionary War and is thought by some historians to have been Muslim, while the district's U.S. Representative Sean Patrick Maloney suggested that the park be named after folk singer Pete Seeger. In response, Trump suggested that New York State return the park's land to his ownership. Efforts to rename the park after Pete Seeger continued in early 2016 with a petition by activist group "People for the Pete Seeger State Park" on Change.org. In September 2017, New York's 25th Assembly District Representative Nily Rozic, a Democrat, suggested renaming the park in honor of Heather Heyer, who died in a vehicle-ramming attack while protesting the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. No renaming of the park has been undertaken and the proposal was largely ignored. Rozic, along with New York State Senator Brad Hoylman, reintroduced legislation to rename the park in 2018 but it did not make it out of committee. They again introduced legislation in 2019 to rename the park.
After the 2021 United States Capitol attack, there were renewed attempts to rename the park, and an online petition to rename it after Sojourner Truth (a native of nearby Ulster County) gained over 160,000 signatures. New York Assemblywoman Sandy Galef argued that the state should move forward with changing the park's name, arguing that "Mr. Trump did not sign the appropriate documents with the state, rendering any claim of breach of contract moot." Galef called for the park to be renamed in honor of former New York Republican governor George Pataki, who grew up in the area. Galef wrote, "Monuments, landmarks, and parks can hold a symbolic meaning and in this case a park named for Donald J. Trump can only represent the division he has sought to create in our country over the past four years. This division has no place in our state. Motorists have complained about the Trump signs on the Taconic for years, and we must take a stand." The effort to rename the park failed again in 2021 after not going up for a vote before state lawmakers during the legislative session.
