Indiana County

WalkWorks Program

Program Overview:

In 2015, Indiana County was selected to participate in the WalkWorks program.  WalkWorks is a collaboration between the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development, Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Downtown Center (formerly through the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health) to increase opportunities for physical activity across Indiana County.  Through this grant funded program, planners work with local communities to identify community-based walking routes and form sustainable walking groups that will enhance and expand active transportation with the ultimate goal of improving the health of County residents.



Thanks to everyone who participated in #ICDecathlon2021!


The 2021 Indiana County Decathlon is over and we’re preparing for 2022.  In the meantime, please explore the county with these Self-Guided Walking Tours created for your use. Looking forward to seeing you on our next adventures.

Looking for a fun way to connect? Grab 2 to 5 of your friends and family and have fun!
