No matter your age or marital/family status, there’s no excuse for sitting around like a couch potato all summer when there’s a world class recreational complex in Hammond to suit your sporting needs. Chappapeela Sports Park, located within the city limits at 19325 Hipark Boulevard, contains an indoor gymnasium for basketball and volleyball, plus outdoor soccer, baseball, soccer, and football fields. There’s also a 1.5 mile walking trail, multiple playgrounds, and a covered splash pad.
Of course, they have plenty of kids’ sports, but there are also leagues for adults. Flag football, softball, or pickleball, anyone? They also host special events, like the annual Easter Eggstravaganza and Turkey Day 5K Run and Mashed Potato Mile, fostering a real sense of community.
