Celebrate 50 Years
with the Elkhart County Parks

This year holds special significance as 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Elkhart County Parks. As one of the county's leading resources in outdoor recreation, Elkhart County Parks serves more than 325,000 visitors each year through interpretive programs, special events, education, community projects, and park facilities. As we continue to explore new ways to empower, inspire and engage the community of today and tomorrow, we invite you join us in celebrating 50 years.

You're invited to our
50 Year Festival!


The Elkhart County Parks is throwing a festival to celebrate our 50 Year Anniversary and you and your family are invited! Come out and enjoy birthday cake while listening to music from local Spanish rock band, Lalo Cura playing live on the Ox Bow Tower. We’ll be offering lots of fun activities, including lawn games, craft stations, live hawks and owls, a touch-a-truck area, and a portable rock climbing wall.
