Recreational Resources 

 

Goal:  The recreational resources of the Juniata Watershed should be readily accessible and affordable for all of the watershed's residents.  Greenway corridors, providing river access and trails, should be developed to enhance residents' appreciation for the value and beauty of the area's natural resources.  Recreational resources should be maintained in good condition in order to attract those from outside the region to vacation here.  Efforts to combine the attractions of both recreational and historical sites should be continued in order to heighten educational value and tourist appeal.
