All Things New at Columbian Park

New things abound at Lafayette, Indiana’s Columbian Park, and if you know of it already, you know it seriously looks like a different place. The improvements and advancements are quality, creating an entirely new feel to the already beautiful 40 acre inner city park. Classic aspects to the park still exist: the train, diverse and age appropriate playgrounds, and rentable gazebos, etc., but now progress is happening too. Seek and check out these new additions next time you visit Columbian Park in Greater Lafayette, IN! Loeb Stadium Rendering of Loeb Stadium, American StructurePoint The south side of Columbian Park took in some major visual changes and Loeb Stadium is one large culprit of that change! Loeb Stadium was built this past year to bring more baseball to our area. Lafayette Aviators call this new stadium their home as well as little leaguers from our community. The surrounding stoplights, sidewalks, and streetlights also benefitted from this upgrade, completing the look they were going for. It truly is a fantastic addition to Columbian Park, making the south entrance to the park feel luxurious.
