Crown Point, IN
City of Crown Point
The City of Crown Point recognized the need to enhance recreational and cultural opportunities for citizens and visitors alike. With a combination of funds from their Redevelopment Program and a generous donation from the Dean White Foundation, the City acquired a vacant 2.5-acre site one block from City Square and developed Bulldog Park.
Bulldog Park includes new recreational facilities, such as the splashpad, amphitheater with lawn seating, and covered NHL-sized ice rink for both hockey games and public skating. It also improves previous programs and facilities: the community rooms in the new Recreation Center replace the old Civic Center meeting rooms and the covered rink area will serve as the local festival and Farmer’s Market space, which previously required the closing of the City Square.
