Like many of the Valparaiso Parks, Valplayso has a rich history of serving children and parents of several generations. The next generation Valplayso is now complete, as nearly 3,000 community members gave their support as managers, workers and as financial contributors to the project. Many individuals, corporations and non-profits donated time, money, and food for the work crews. As a result, the Valparaiso Park Department was able to leverage the purchase of some fantastic play equipment, provide a safer environment, better parking, improved bathrooms and more.
As of December 2014, the park was mostly operational for the enjoyment of Valpo residents and visitors. The park department was still seeking to fill the final spaces of The Face Place, a Valplayso gathering spot and a place where anyone may have their likeness etched on a tile for display. To learn more about sponsorship and naming opportunities, contact Valpo Parks at 219-462-5144 or see the attached pdf handout. RootsFall2014_valpoparks
