Portage Indiana is the largest city in Porter County and the third-largest in Northwest Indiana home to about 38,000 residents. This heavily industrial city has been dependent on the steel industry since it started in the early 1900s. It's it's been primarily a steel industrial and farming community but there are very few active farms still in the portage area today.
The city has seen many green technology industries since the 2000s and since 2016, there's been a new police station and fire station, triple the size of the former one. There are youth camps, a vibrant recreational department, food truck programs, annual senior health fairs, and the famous Wine and Canvas at the Lakefront event an annual event down on the portage Lakefront featuring a buffet-style dinner, open bar, painting instructions, and a beautiful view.
Speaking of the Lakefront, established in 2008, the Portage Lakefront and Riverwalk at 1000 Riverwalk Dr. is a 57-acre park developed on the former National Steel property providing access to Lake Michigan and the Burns Waterway. This beautiful park is open daily and the Riverwalk stairs feature access from the South parking area to trails all throughout the park. There's a pavilion available during the summer and lots of natural landscapes and wildlife.
Portage has its own portage Township school system, which includes 11 public schools, eight elementary schools, two middle schools, and one senior high school. There are also two private schools, the Portage Christian school and the Nativity of Our Savior School.
Portage also has several magazines and newspapers including the Post Tribune of Northwest Indiana and the Times of Northwest Indiana.
