Central Park

Nestled in a bend of Portage Creek behind the City of Portage Police/Court complex, Central Park is a hidden jewel. The shelter and playground are great for picnics of all sizes. Take a peaceful walk along Portage Creek to an overlook bridge and in the summer, enjoy a concert at the Overlander Bandshell.
