E.K. WARREN'S GIFT

 

The City Beach, City Boat Launch, City Riverfront, and Lions Pavilion Park are all part of a single piece of property given as a gift forever to the Village (now City) of New Buffalo on June 18, 1924 through a deed by the Warren Featherbone Company, showing the generosity of its founder, Edward K. Warren.  In 1979, the City of New Buffalo received a quit claim deed from the Warren Featherbone Company extinguishing any reversionary right or interest.

 

The map below shows the area of each lakefront park.

 

  • City Beach (yellow) 7.25 acres of sandy beach, 6 acres of dunes, and 2.1 acres of a little over 200 parking spaces
  • City Boat Launch (light blue) 4.75 acres
  • City Riverfront (red) approximately 1 acre
  • Lions Pavilion Park (green; City owned and operated) 2 acres

 

The map also shows: City Transient Marina (dark blue) 3.25 acres (2 acres non-submerged), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers rights-of-way for the federal breakwaters (black outline), Federal Navigation Channel (pink) and the Launch Access Channel (orange).
