• Idlewild Park recognized as historical place in Pennsylvania


    LIGONIER, Pa. - Idlewild Park was officially declared a historical place in Pennsylvania Saturday.

    Pennsylvania officials presented an official state historical marker to the Ligonier park for its long history and ability to change over time.

    "Who would have thought 135 years ago, when Judge Thomas Mellon founded the Ligonier Valley Railroad, and Idlewild became a picnic ground along the railroad, that 135 years later, Idlewild and SoakZone would be recognized by the state as the oldest amusement park in the state," said Jeff Croushore, a spokesperson for Idlewild and SoakZone.

    “Amusement Today” ranked Idlewild and SoakZone as the best children’s park in the world.
