We will be moving out to crown point in a couple of months. Absolutely love it there. The one thing I don't understand is that there are no great parks for families. We drove around and around, found a little run down park but nothing great. No sitting benches where you can kick back and watch the kids play. No small tennis courts or areas, nature trails in designated areas to come with the family and just chill after a days work. Don't get me wrong, crown point does have a lot to offer but for a town that boasts it's a great place to raise a family.. I don't get why there are no beautiful parks. Any ideas if there are any in the plans? I don't mean sportsplex or organized sports parks, just playgrounds and such

I had a hard time finding one for my 2 daughters driving around the area as well but found that Collins Park on Merrillville Rd was a pretty nice spot. Tennis Court/Ballpark on the grounds as well as a newer play area and separate Swings/Teeter Totter setup.

You could always venture out to Lemon Lake too. There's a vehicle surcharge to get in there though. Beautiful Park though.

I was going to recommend Lemon Lake as well.

Do the fair grounds not offer any of that or are they not open year round to the public?
