A long-time popular attraction, Rogers Lakewood Park has been a respite for fishing, picnicking and nature watching since its inception in 1961. Nestled on 122 acres of rolling woodlands on Valparaiso's northwest side, this park offers picnic pavilions, sledding hill, a disc golf course, and a skateboard park. Lakewood Link, a two-mile foot/bike trail, connects Rogers-Lakewood Park to Foundation Meadows. The rolling terrain and size of this park make it a great destination for the nature enthusiast. Two lakes offer fishing, boating (paddle and rowboat rentals available) and wildlife viewing. The park has many mature trees, from park-like stands with mowed grass to natural oak forest. Native wildflower plantings offer enjoyment to visitors and hungry birds. There is an entrance fee.
