Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve
Phone: (219) 926-1842
This beautiful 167-acre preserve showcases an inspiring and aesthetically stunning marriage of nature and culture. The natural landscape includes a mix of restored prairie, creek, wetlands, and woodlands. Preserve planners have added human infrastructure to that natural setting and have done so with careful planning and exquisite attention to aesthetics, function, and environmental responsibility. Interpretive signage enhances the experience. Buildings are constructed of local materials, like Indiana limestone, whenever possible. The preserve offers a 5-mile trail system, plus education programs. A summer concert series takes place in an open-air amphitheater.
Porter County's first producer only market features local farmers, specialty food producers, and food trucks. The Coffee Creek Farmers Market will be held every Wednesday from May through October. Every third Wednesday the market will expand to include an Artisan/Craft vendor section around the Coffee Creek Amphitheater.
