Indiana is full of parks, state, public, and privately owned. But sometimes you need to travel a distance to get to one; those familiar to you could be Potato Creek, Indiana Dunes, and Brown County. However, did you also know that hidden in southern Marshall County we have a nature park located on the Tippecanoe River called Potawatomi Wildlife Park?
Open to the public daily from sun up to sun down, this 317-acre rural setting with stunning hiking paths, canoeing, bird watching, a nature center, geocaching, and Indiana’s first Dark-Sky Preserve will sure have something for everyone in your family or group of friends.
Potawatomi Wildlife Park carries historical significance as well, once with Indian encampments, the Steven Ben-nack Potawatomi Village, a portion of the Goshen-Logansport trail, and the Tippecanoe River are where several early Indian trails were forged.
New to Potawatomi Wildlife Park in 2010, is a large group pavilion that holds over 200 people. The facility includes a mini kitchen, restrooms, and atmosphere to compliment any large group gathering which is great for your next event. But be sure to contact the park with questions and rental fees at 574-498-6550.
So wondering what do this summer and want an attraction close to home? Visit the Potawatomi Wildlife Park in Tippecanoe; you will be sure glad you did.
