Rental spaces for weddings, showers, birthday parties, and other events are available at both Sunset Hill Farm County Park and Brincka Cross Gardens. Both parks, maintained by the Porter County Parks department, have indoor and outdoor spaces for events.

At Sunset Hill Farm County Park (corner of U.S. 6 and Meridian Road, Valparaiso) event organizers can choose from outdoor venues such as the amphitheater, gazebo, open fields, and picnic shelters. The park can accommodate large festivals such as concerts or small celebrations like birthday parties. Parks Department Event and Rentals Coordinator Madison Binkowski says no event is too large or small. “Sunset Hill has so many unique spaces for events that it allows us to offer everything from family picnics to 5k races.”

At Brincka Cross Gardens (Furness Road in Pine Township), visitors can rent the architecturally unique former residence on the 23-acre property, which showcases beautiful gardens and walking trails. The home holds approximately 40 people and is an ideal location for showers, graduation parties, business or wellness retreats, and intimate weddings. In spring, the gardens bloom with thousands of daffodils and dozens of magnolia trees.

To learn more about the event spaces offered through Porter County Parks, visit the Parks office in the Porter County Administration Building, 155 Indiana Avenue, Valparaiso, call (219) 465-3586, or visit
