A dedication ceremony is set for Thursday in Vincennes for a large new park and preservation area. The Fox Ridge Nature Park in Knox County previously served as a golf course.
Also attending the event will be Governor Mike Pence and representatives from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Knox County Parks and Recreation Department and Bicentennial Commission. It will join the statewide Bicentennial Nature Trust program.
The park received state funding and has undergone significant work during the summer to set up and prepare the trail system for the public park. The nearly-100 acre property opened to the public in April.
