Burns Harbor

One part industry, one part contemporary city—and all parts growing. A town built on steel, Burns Harbor has become a champion of the environmental movement, as showcased by The Village in Burns Harbor, the first neighborhood in the nation to be awarded the National Green Building Standard.

With easy access to highways and a commuter rail, Burns Harbor offers a nature-inspired reprieve for those who work in Chicago but play in Northwest Indiana. Residents and visitors alike will enjoy the town’s green spaces like the 29-acre Lakeland Park. This community park has a lake for swimming, rowboats for renting in the summer, and plenty of recreation space to walk, run, and play. Burns Harbor is also home to the Little Calumet River fishing access site, lending quiet charm to this emerging all-American town.
