About This Location

University Farm Park
University Farm Park is a six acre park located at the corner of LaGrange and Hamilton Streets.  It contains a picnic shelter, picnic tables, and a playground for ages 2-5 and 5-12.  University Farm Park had its birth in the creative dual use of land.  Development of the University Farm Subdivision required storm water detention.  This detention basin was located along a traditional drainage way.  Be agreement between the Park Board and the developer, Purdue Research Foundation, the Park Board would take over the detention basin and two adjoining lots as a neighborhood park.  The Park Board also purchased three additional lots, with funding from the West Lafayette Redevelopment Commission.  The park is a neighborhood park.  It is designed to serve the neighborhood (a twenty minutes walking distance).  It's facilities are compatible with its immediate residential neighbors.  The park was dedicated in October 1993.
