Foundation Meadows Park is located north and east of the Valpo Parks main office, across from Keystone Commons Subdivision, and just south of Bullseye Lake Road / Ransom Road.

Community Garden

Next to the Admin Office is the Community Garden, with individual plots open for registration in March. Click HERE for more information.

The Prairie and Arboretum

As part of the master plan, Valpo Parks created a native tree arboretum and restored upland, mesic, and wetland ecosystems, which existed on these 20 acres prior to agricultural activity.

The Prairie is unique in the current park system as a place where only native vegetation is displayed, providing an area where native ecosystems can be observed and studied. Our hope is that our visitors gain an appreciation for what once was here and become able to identify invasive plants on their own properties.

Butterfly Meadows & Caterpillar Crossing

Foundation Meadows Park also includes a playground known as Butterfly Meadows and Caterpillar Crossing, 2 picnic shelters, a StoryWalk, and seasonal restrooms. Opposite the playground are the Tri Kappa Gazebo, the Service Memorial Fountain & Monuments, and a large open greenspace.
