Soldiers Memorial Park, dedicated in 1928 and containing 556 acres, serves the population of northern Indiana and southern Michigan. It is the largest city park and widely known for its forested beauty, water sports and organized recreational activities.
The park encompasses all of Stone Lake, 140 acres of water and all but 628 feet of its shoreline. Also the park provides a variety of active and passive recreational activities including swimming, playgrounds, diamond sports, volleyball, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, fishing and boating.
Within its gently rolling terrain, the property is approximately 85 percent woodlands and water. Access is available to Stone Lake, Pine Lake, Crane Lake and Craven Pond. Nature trails have been developed through a stand of native trees, allowing environmental education opportunities.
Soldiers Memorial Park is also the site of the Park Office and maintenance facilities, as well as Cummings Lodge.
