Spotlight on Happy Hollow Park

Spotlight on Happy Hollow Park

This just in: SPRING! We’re excited because we can open those windows, say goodbye to the heating bill, and enjoy fresh, spring air. As we take a deep breath in, we acknowledge- ’tis the season for outdoor play, bonfires, picnics, hikes, and allergies. Life is so good here in Lafayette/West Lafayette, IN in the beautiful spring time! Here’s some information about one of the many lovely parks our area has to offer!   Happy Hollow Formation Happy Hollow Park is easy on the eyes, but how exactly did it form? According to Encyclopedia Britannica, a hollow forms by wind! Indiana has an abundance of wind, so that’s not too surprising. Long story short, through a process called “deflation” flat areas give an appearance of “hilly” with wind picking up rock and debris, distributing it elsewhere, and packing it down due to wind force. Consequently, this leaves us with a beautiful landscape, decorated with trees and other foliage. You’ll have to go see it yourself.   Happy Hollow Park Breakdown Happy Hollow Park sits on about 81 acres of land. You’ll love the drive in. Fresh blossoms line the lane in the spring, and as summer draws near, it turns to greenery. Immediately, you see the big kid playground with the little kid playground shortly behind. The playgrounds are grouped ages 5-12 and 2-5 for safety, but something else to note is that they are wheel chair accessible. There is even a small library book house to enjoy a book while playing at the park! Parking is straight forward and easy, and the bathrooms are conveniently accessible and always clean....
