In light of the emerging concerns regarding the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), and after consultation with the Porter County Health Department, the Porter County Board of Parks and Recreation has postponed all programs, rentals and events until April 10, 2020.

Our outdoor facilities such as trails, fields and wildlife viewing areas, will continue to be open to the public just as they are now. The “old bathrooms” at Sunset Hill Farm will be temporarily closed until April 10 as well. The new bathrooms at Sunset Hill Farm, which are connected to the Horton Family Children’s Education Center, will remain open and will be cleaned twice a day until further notice.

On a weekly basis, the Park Board and department staff will determine any further cancellations for programs or events scheduled after April 10 at these venues. Any future cancellations will be posted on portercountyparks.org and social media channels. Individuals who have registered for programs or have scheduled rentals will be contacted by staff for re-scheduling or refund information. We will provide information about public Park Board meetings in the next few days.

More information regarding COVID-19 symptoms, prevention and County cancellation notices can be found on the Porter County website (www.porterco.org) or the CDC’s website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html).
