Since it opened in 2014, Grand Park Sports Complex has brought thousands of visitors to Westfield, Indiana. Located north of Indianapolis, Westfield has since developed an itinerary of things to do with a new winery, more breweries and an extended food scene along Park Street.
Along SR-32 find Westfield’s newest foodie destination, Field Brewing, a family-friendly restaurant and brewery led by two-time James Beard Awards rising-star chef semifinalist Alan Sternberg.
Many visitors come to Westfield for youth sporting events at Grand Park, a premier 400-acre facility that hosts events year-round. Despite its massive size, Grand Park is easy to navigate to the correct parking lot and field with clear signage. Bring cash or a card for purchases from concession stands. Don’t forget a camera to capture the action and championship moments – tag your photos using #VisitHC and you might see them appear on the Grand Park Wall of Fame social media wall inside the Grand Park Events Center.
No matter what your taste buds crave, Westfield eateries will satisfy your appetite. If you’re visiting Grand Park and need to grab a quick bite to eat in between games, head south to Bub’s Burgers (known for the Big Ugly one-pound burger) or Titus Bakery and Deli for a sweet treat and sandwich. Or devour award-winning BBQ at Big Hoffa’s Smokehouse BBQ. Cheers to the day with a hand-crafted brew at Grand Junction Brewing Co. or a wine slushie at Urban Vines.
Enjoy a sit-down meal along Westfield’s “Restaurant Row,” a local term for the collection of restaurants tucked away on Park Street, just south of downtown Westfield. Here you’ll find sushi at Chiba Indy, pasta at Italian House on Park and farm-to-table creations at Rail Epicurean Market. A new shuttle system will pick patrons up at a nearby parking lot and drop them off at their restaurant of choice.
Westfield is best explored by foot or bike. The Monon Trail is an 18+ mile multi-use path that starts in Westfield and connects to Carmel and further south to Indianapolis. No bike? No problem. Just rent one for just $3 an hour at one of the Zagster bike share stations. Take a hike at MacGregor Park or Cool Creek Park and Nature Center – both are favorites for families and nature photographers.
