"All-Inclusive" Park at Lakefront Planned

(Michigan City, IN) - There are plans in motion for a new playground and outdoor fitness area at the lakefront in Michigan City.


$4 million in federal funds have been secured to build it at Fedder’s Alley at Washington Park, with efforts ongoing to raise another $1 million to cover the balance of the cost.


City Councilman Don Przybylinski said the facility will be for all individuals regardless of their physical abilities. “There will be playground equipment there for anyone with any abilities.  Individuals with disabilities, whether it’s visual, whether it’s hearing impaired, whether your child is restricted to a wheelchair for whatever reason,” he said.


Pyzybylinski also noted that there will also be a walking track with a soft surface constructed for people to use instead of walking in the parking lot or somewhere else on the property, along with outdoor physical fitness equipment designed to weather the elements.


The hope is to raise enough money to begin construction in the spring of next year.  Przybylinski said he believes the all-inclusive facility will have enough offerings to be a regional destination.
