The Vigo County Parks Department is trying to decide what to do with hundreds of acres of new land.

The Board closed on 824 acres formerly owned by Pfizer Inc on Tuesday. The land is in southern Vigo County, mostly north of Dallas Road.

Parks officials might create a trail system for hiking, hunting and fishing. Part of the property will serve as a dog park. They also plan to build a shelter and a restroom facility.

The addition gives Vigo County Parks 40 percent more space.

The Wabash Valley Community Foundation and the Vigo County Redevelopment Commission covered the cost.
