Glendale Lake in the park offers great fishing, swimming and boating activities in the spring and summer, and the park also plays host to cross-country skiers and snowmobilers in the winter months. The park is less than 10 miles away from Altoona, which is the tenth largest city in the state.

District 9 has a relatively low amount of road miles to maintain and supervise. The district is also largely rural, so there are not a lot of daily miles traveled (only 12,938,000, which is one of the lowest amounts in the state).

In 2011, there were a total of 5,000 car accidents in the district, which resulted in 70 deaths and 3,155 injuries. Only one other district in Pennsylvania (District 10) had less fatal car crashes. As far as trucking safety is concerned, between 2006 and 2010, District 9 saw a total of 36 fatal truck accidents, the lowest amount of any district during that time period. These statistics make District 9 one of the safest, if not the safest transportation district in Pennsylvania.
