Forty years ago, the Keyser Valley Park was rechristened as the Joseph M. McDade Recreational Park. McDade Park today includes a swimming pool with bath house, children’s fishing pond, basketball and tennis courts, a softball field, pavilions, picnic areas and a trail system.

A recent ceremony celebrated the park’s 40th anniversary.
