La Porte, IN boasts a bustling downtown, beautiful parks and lakes, and plenty of culture and activities to keep the whole family entertained. ""La Porte"" means 'the door' in French, which describes this city's unique location as a passageway from forest to prairie - something you'll see evidence of as soon as you visit.
There are two large memorial parks on the north-western edge of La Porte. Both the Fox Memorial Park and Soldiers Memorial Park include large lakes and boast all kinds of recreational activities. Fox Memorial Park was landscaped over 100 years ago -- visit during Fall for beautiful walks among the radiant colours of a tree-fringed lake. Alternatively, pack a picnic and make a day of it on one of the lake's lovely beaches.
