HOWARD PARK REDEVELOPMENT
Venues Parks and Arts is the municipal department which is tasked with creating exceptional arts and recreation experiences throughout the City of South Bend. VPA is currently implementing a strategic master plan for the parks system which positions Howard Park as the premier, four-season destination. The original ice hockey rink was demolished and replaced with a skate trail and water feature. Additional park amenities include a community center, restaurant, bar and event lawn with performance stage. The project is expected to receive LEED Gold.
