Porter County Parks Are Open

More About Porter County Parks Are Open

The past two months have demonstrated how important our local trails and opens spaces continue to be. Porter County Parks will remain open for the public, barring any changes from our local, state, or federal governments. Please use our parks as a way to refresh and enjoy time outside of your home. Keep a safe distance of 6 feet between people, and wash your hands before and after leaving a park.

Spend some time outside enjoying fresh air and sunshine! Our woodland trails at Sunset Hill Farm and Brincka Cross Gardens are great spaces for walking and hiking. Brookdale Farm and Dunn's Bridge are also calming and scenic spots to visit.

Are parks open during the coronavirus pandemic?
Yes! We are committed to keeping parks and trails open from 7 AM to sunset.

Is it safe to visit the parks with everything going on?
Yes! According to Dr. Anthony Fauci the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), outdoor exercise is not only safe, it is healthy! You should still practice social distancing and not gather as a group, but hikes and walks are a great way to weather this.

Are playgrounds open?
No. Playgrounds have been closed by the Governor's Stay-At-Home Order until further notice.

Are programs cancelled?
Until further notice public programs have been cancelled. We will continue to evaluate when and how we are able to resume programs.
