Our new lakefront park is the crown jewel of our park system. Amenities include a pavilion with an educational classroom, a cafe, restrooms, board walks, a pier, and two small parking lots.
The park is open to the public from 7am to 1/2 hour after dusk. Cafe and restroom hours are daily from 10am to dusk (weather permitting).
The City of Portage has worked in cooperation with the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore to obtain management of the land, even though it is under Indiana Dunes ownership. The property consists of several endangerd plants and other species of environmental significance. With the help of J.F. New, an ecological restoration company, we will have an up-to-date plant inventory and stablebanks as a result of a restoration.
