For fun summer attractions. Bring the whole family down and make a day of it!
Classic American Pastime, Old Fashioned Custard
Right across the street from our shop is Loeb Stadium, home of the Lafayette Aviators. The stadium hosts IHSAA tournaments, American Legion baseball, and the Colt World Series.
Grab a Fresh Fruit Drink and See the Animals!
Directly across from the stadium is the Columbian Park Zoo. The zoo is free to the public, but they encourage donations. There are various exhibits from around the world, and it is open from mid-April to mid-October each year.
Frozen Custard Float…But not in the Pool, Please!
Tropicanoe Cove is located behind Loeb Stadium. It is a waterpark/pool area with some fun Banana Peel waterslide! Prices vary, so you’ll want to visit their website for more information.
Rent a Facility Right Near a Frozen Custard Shop
Rush Pavilion is nestled within the heart of Columbian park. It is a large white building with several wrap-around porches overlooking the water. It’s available for rent and makes a great location for parties and family events. Check out the website for more information.
Take a Stroll Around the Park with a Homemade Frozen Custard
Columbian Park is the all-encompassing feature of the area. There are plenty of gazebos with picnic tables for family gatherings. There’s a large playground area for the kids and a vast network of footpaths. Also, there’s a miniature passenger train that carries passengers around a pond that many use for casual fishing.
Stop by our shop from March 1 to October 31 to make the Original Frozen Custard
part of your very own family tradition, just like ours.
