The City of Gary is pleased to welcome you to Marquette Park. Please explore our website to see what the park has to offer.
Whether it's an exclusive event for 350 people or an intimate gathering for ten specially invited guests, Marquette Park offers options for any type of gathering.
Children's Playground - The children’s playground was designed to provide a unique play environment for children along the lakefront.
Oak Savanna - Comprised of mostly black oaks, the oak savanna is a pre-settlement plant community that is at least two thousand years old.
Patterson Island - Two bridges connect to Patterson Island, both constructed in the 1930s: the Japanese bridge and the cable hung steel bridge.
Father Marquette Monument - The sculpture was placed at the entrance to Marquette Park at Grand Boulevard and Marquette Drive in a dedication ceremony in July of 1932.
The Dance Pavilion - Set several feet higher than the surrounding grade, it is accessible from the Marquette Park Pavilion by a bridge, or from the park by means of stairways located to the east and west.
