The Emmerling Community Park is owned and operated by the suburb of Indiana.
Indiana is a small town of about 7,000 people located north of Pittsburgh.
Emmerling Park consists of a 59 acre parcel of land that was purchased by the town in 1968. Then, approximately 10 acres with a house was given to the township in 1972 by Dr. & Mrs. John F. Emmerling in memory of his parents Jane Beeson Emmerling and John F. Emmerling. The park was originally referred to as "Cove Run Park", but was changed in 1972 in honor of the Emmerling gift.
Facilities at the park include three picnic pavilions, three playing fields, a large parking lot, playground apparatus, public restrooms and a concession stand. A walking trail follows Little Deer Creek as it meanders through the park. The stream is stocked with trout. The Emmerling House and Arboretum area, and a walking trail are located within the park.
Daily, dawn to dusk.
Free, on-site parking is available.
