About

Though just 16 acres in size and surrounded by industry, the park provides a critical stopover for neotropical migrant birds, which funnel through the Hammond Lakefront Park and Bird Sanctuary in astonishing numbers. That’s why birders have long referred to this site as “The Migrant Trap.” A rough trail runs the length of the site, allowing you to scan the woods and grassy areas for birds. The main gate may be closed during winter months, but the turnstile on the east end of the park is always open. Visitors will need to show identification to access the parking lot.
