DRAZER PARK – 908 W. DAUMER ROAD
The Kouts Drazer Park was dedicated in 1966, and named in honor of Thomas Drazer of Kouts, the first Vietnam casualty from Porter County.
Drazer Park is located on the south west side of town at the end of Daumer Road. It’s a quiet, shady place to relax with a picnic, or just sit and visit with friends while the kids play in the playground.
If you would like to reserve the pavilion or gazebo for family reunions or all-day events, please contact the Kouts Town Hall at 219-766-3312 for rental fee information. Electric is available to renters.
