Beautiful dune hiking through forested dunes (7 different trail experiences), a nice little Nature Center that boasts a bird room that overlooks several bird feeders (sometimes other wildlife as well).
With its nature center, explanatory film, plentiful parking, trails to suit every level of fitness, and beautifully clean beaches, this park is a "must walk" for anyone traversing Northwest Indiana.

Plenty of park benches along the way and scattered through out the park, including by the Veterans War Memorial honoring all branches of our military with an eternal flame torch.
... finish line, just by chance as I waited for friends....They have a concert series on Thursday nights and they are truly worth the time and low $7 fee to get in....this Park is truly a Gem in the neighborhood....
