Rogers Lakewood Park is the perfect place to spend a day outdoors. We offer boat rentals, concessions, family fun packs, and fishing pole rentals. Located on Loomis and Spectacle lake, Lakewood is perfect for a day of fishing. Fishermen and fisherwomen will need to have the proper fishing license inside the park. The park has trails, both paved and un-paved, for biking, walking, and running. There is also a connection from Meridian into the park. Lakewood has a number of shelters that can be reserved for a fee, perfect for family get togethers and company parties. The beach area is a nice area to relax and sunbathe. Remember, no swimming at the beach is allowed.For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Valparaiso holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Rogers-Lakewood Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Just a great place for a leisurely day. I often ride my bicycle through just to get off the road for a few minutes, but I have also just walked around, fished a little and had my kayak on the lake... more »
Great place for our family reunion. Our area was very clean! The trails were well kept. We had plenty of space to spread out, eat & play. Plenty of fishing sites were available for use. We had a shelter with men & women bathrooms which was great for our more elder members as well as all the children. There were overhead lights in the shelter which helped since it was overcast. There were between 65-70 people, & at one point we all fit under the shelter comfortably.
What a beautiful park, seriously. I love the white geese! And they walk in a row even! My favorite part is that boat ramp type of thing. I took a million photos of it for some reason. I had a really relaxing one-person picnic on my yoga mat and enjoyed my overnight oats. I made some Scrabble moves and listened to NPR while walking the trail. Had a blast!
