Old structures at Dunes Friendship Land to be removed

Back To Front Page

A big section of Dunes Friendship Land at West Morgan Ave. and Fifth Street is being permanently removed.

But it will be replaced.

Chesterton Park Administrator Hilary Thomas-Peterson told the Chesterton Tribune today that the section of Friendship Land with the large structures--including the ship--will be removed, starting on Monday, April 8. That section will be roped off on Friday, April, 5, and during the removal process next week will be closed.

The pre-school section of Friendship Land will remain open to the public.

Thomas-Peterson said that the structures to be removed are becoming hazardous but that the plan is to replace them this summer.

The Park Department is asking the public to be mindful of the work area and not to cross into the closed-off section.
