July 3, 2009

On this day, July 3, 2009, the City of Lancaster celebrated 100 years of the beginning of Rising Park and the Lancaster Parks and Recreation Department.

Rising Park was originally dedicated July 5, 1909, following the gift of 73 acres from Philip & Carrie E. Rising to the City of Lancaster to be managed and used as a free public park for our citizens forever.
