Leaders Giving Back - Tower Park
Renovation of Tower Park received a significant boost with a lead gift from the Samardzija family to renovate the baseball/softball field in the park at Franklin Street and Evans Avenue.
This announcement made in May 2016 was the first of many volunteer and private sector announcements and opportunities that will be part of the Valpo Park Foundation Leaders Giving Back Campaign that will support renovation of sports facilities, neighborhood parks and other special venues.
Purdue Cardinal Community Hoops also made a gift to build a Purdue-themed basketball court at Tower Park, which was followed by gifts from former Valparaiso High School standouts and their families to build a VHS-themed court at the same location.
