Since 1956, Somerset County's population has almost tripled, from less than 130,000 to over 310,000 residents. County parkland has grown from nothing to 10,000 acres, of which 6,500 are available for use by the more than 2 million park users each year.

These lands contain five golf courses, on which over four million rounds have been played, three driving ranges, a pitch and putt course, a recreational putting course, a riding stable, an environmental education center, two tennis facilities, an outdoor pool, paddle boating, a rock and rare plant garden, an award winning rose garden, an arboretum, a sensory and fragrance garden, six parks offering amenities including athletic fields, picnic facilities, bike paths, and fishing opportunities, and several natural areas offering solitude and pursuits including bird-watching, cross country skiing, and hiking.

Many special events, including concerts, fairs and festivals, golf tournaments, art shows, and summer camps occur throughout the year. Thanks to the continued support and enthusiasm of the residents of Somerset County, the park system should meet its 20,000-acre goal within the foreseeable future. The Park Commission anticipates a future that will continue stewardship of our lands and increased active and passive recreation opportunities to meet the growing demands of Somerset County citizens for the next 50 years.
