On July 13, the Indiana County Commissioners passed a proclamation praising the Indiana County Parks and Trails Commission on its 50th anniversary. Commissioner Rodney Ruddock called the county’s network of parks, trails, historic sites, and natural areas “the strongest program for parks and trails in the state.” The proclamation coincided with the publishing of a new booklet that details the history of county-owned recreation sites compiled by Parks and Trails Commission Director Ed Patterson, Indiana County Parks and Trails 50th Anniversary: 1967-2017. It describes the history of the park system and the people who were instrumental in helping it grow.
