Crawford Park Grand Opening

Crawford Park 445 N. Niles Ave, Mishawaka, United States

The New Crawford Park
• Establishing a unique identity for the park unlike any other in the City. Thematically creating a “Nature Park” that would include man made constructed wetlands.
• Moves major park elements like play equipment out of the floodplain.
• Creates an active play area that would include nature themed equipment and a water element for smaller children in the area of the current splashpad. The playground will feature inclusive components for children of any ability.
• Establishes a neighborhood lawn area for open play and special events like a movie or concert.
• Build a new restroom building adjacent to the play area that would also be convenient for visitors to the Shiojiri Niwa Japanese Garden across the street.
• Build three new picnic shelters/pavilions to meet increased demand. One adjacent to the play area, one in the center of the park, and one adjacent to Niles Avenue. Provide a small off-street parking lot at Niles Avenue south of the intersection of Linden Avenue to better meet the parking requirements for the proposed activities.
• Adds multiple sidewalks and board walks in the park to improve handicapped accessibility to equipment/restrooms
