Indiana Parks & Gardens
While Memorial Park is the smallest in Indiana County, it is filled with history. Surveyed in 1774, the park once held a cemetery, in fact many graves remain in the park. The property on which the park sits also hid stowaways during the Underground Railroad era, helping transport slaves to freedom. With plenty of benches and green space, visitors can enjoy some quiet time or take in some music during the summer concert series.
Tunnelview Historic Site is found in Indiana and contains a 900 ft (275 m) section of the Pennsylvania Mainline Canal. These remains are found near the Conemaugh Dam and explain the area's transportation heritage. Also on the site is a park which offers a pavilion, a canoe launch to the Conemaugh River and other recreational facilities.
