Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Westwood Park was created by the Big Blue River Conservancy District and opened to the public in 1974. The park's main attraction is the 180 acre lake, formed by an earthen dam across Westwood Run, a small tributary to the Big Blue river. The dam and resulting lake serve several purposes; sediment storage and flood control for the Big Blue river, water for municipal or industrial water supply, and recreation. The facility covers approximately 750 acres.

The park is open year round for the public to enjoy a variety of recreational activities. Fishing is excellent for bass, sunfish, crappie, and channel catfish. A small modern campground is located near the lake and is open from May through October. Picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, a horse trail, shelter house and play field are some of the day use activities to be found. Some facilities are handicapped accessible.

While in the park, one may have the opportunity to see many types of wildlife that are present in the various habitats. Hiking trails, the horse trail, and the mountain bike trail offer wonderful scenery of deciduous woodlands, abandoned grasslands, and rolling hills. Numerous species of trees native to Indiana may be found in the park.
