Back To Front Page

The Porter County Board of Parks and Recreation is currently seeking a qualified food service vendor to provide services during specifically identified events at Sunset Hill Farm Park.

The first upcoming event is the Valparaiso High School Cross Country meet, scheduled for August 26, 2014. The Porter County Board of Parks and Recreation will receive submittals from qualified food vendors and then negotiate a contract and complete a comprehensive scope of services. Qualified vendors are invited to submit qualifications to the Porter County Board of Parks and Recreation by August 15, 2014, for consideration.

Sunset Hill Farm Park is a 238 acre parcel gifted to the Porter County Board of Parks and Recreation by Colonel Robert Heffron Murray. The park is at the intersection of Meridian Rd. and US Hwy. 6 in Liberty Township. The property hosts numerous activities, festivals and events. Although food concessions are available to patrons at some events, there is currently no contracted food service vendor providing service at many of the functions and activities.

“We are trying to find new ways to serve our park users and make coming to Sunset Hill Farm a more enjoyable experience,” said Walter Lenckos, County Park Superintendent. Once a vendor is chosen and the Department identifies ways to provide onsite vending services the hope is to create a more permanent provision of refreshments.

Completed qualifications can be submitted no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 15, 2014 in writing to the following address: Superintendent, Porter County Department of Parks and Recreation, Walter Lenckos, 155 Indiana Ave., Suite 304, Valparaiso, IN, 46383.
