Tippecanoe River State Park unveils new accessible sidewalk

Tippecanoe River State Park

WINAMAC, Ind. -- Officials at the Tippecanoe River State Park have announced the opening of a new accessible sidewalk out to an overlook near the park's waterfowl area.

“This is a great area to sit on a bench and enjoy the wildlife and natural surroundings,” said property manager Vernon Gillum. “Turtles, frogs, snakes, and songbirds are frequent visitors to this area, and other wildlife such as well as hawks, raccoons, and waterfowl can also be seen.”

The parking lot for the overlook is at the Walnut Picnic Area, where the birdfeeders are located.

Park officials say both the overlook and the accessible walkway were supported by the Friends of Tippecanoe River State Park and Pulaski County Girl Scout Troops #47607 and #00167.

“The park is very fortunate to have this group of volunteers who care so much about the park and making it more accessible to everyone,” Gillum said.
