When you feel like stepping out for a stroll, you have access to more than three miles of nature trails with stopping points including different fitness stations and a native butterfly garden. Depending on your route through your neighborhood, you’ll also see a soothing panorama of waterfalls, riffles, cascading streams and two lakes surrounded by woods.

If you’re in the mood for family time or mingling with neighbors, you can stop by the clubhouse with a community pool. You can host your own special events such as graduations, birthdays or retirement parties in the clubhouse as well.

When you’re inspired for urban nightlife, simply back out of your three-car garage and drive less than a mile to downtown for dining, entertainment and specialty shopping.

Monarch butterfly.

The city further was named Indiana’s first Monarch City by Monarch City USA. The nonprofit organization aims to help restore the North American monarch butterfly population, which has declined by 80% during the last 20 years, mainly because of habitat loss. Valparaiso supports the initiative with more than 20 acres of habitat areas for monarch butterflies as well as other species.
