WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana's youngest state park is banking on its history and a new water park to help boost its name recognition.
Prophetstown State Park's master plan calls for putting more emphasis on its Native American history while touting the aquatic center that will open July 1. The center will include tube slides, a river float and a pool.
Park user Dan Eversman tells the Journal & Courier the center will draw more people to the park but could alienate those who prefer the tranquil scenery of its 3,000 acres.
Park naturalist Angie Manuel doesn't think the two are mutually exclusive. She says she's excited about attracting more families with children to the park so she can share the rich history of a once-thriving settlement and its inhabitants.
