Karwick Nature Park

This 23-acre City-owned parcel is bisected by the Trail Creek waterway. The western half is landlocked by the Norfolk-Western Railway, CSX Railway, Cheney Run Ditch and Trail Creek itself. The inaccessibility of the western half of the parcel has spared these 12 acres from development over the past several decades and is a rare gem of pristine, undisturbed, natural wildlife habitat near the geographic center of Michigan City. There is a public fishing site on Trail Creek, walking trails, observation areas, a pedestrian bridge over the Trail Creek. and off-street parking.
