Cicero Indiana Real Estate and Community Information
The city of Cicero
is most notable for having welcomed Ryan White, AIDS activist, into its borders in 1987. When you purchase one of the many available homes in the city, you will count yourself among the more than 4,800 people who reside here. Located in the middle of the state, the community has a quaint, lakeside feel.
The town celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2009. The first bridge in the county was built in this charming city in 1838. A railroad established in 1853 spurred the growth of saw mills, flour mills and glass factories. The red bridge depicted as the town’s trademark was removed in the 1950s to make way for Morse Reservoir. The opening of that reservoir brought more growth to the city’s population and industry.
Today, people who own any of the properties in the city enjoy a small-town atmosphere with the convenience of big city life right next door. Indianapolis, Anderson and Kokomo are all just a short drive away.
Parks and Recreation
Part of the draw of the city is its beautiful park system
. If you and your family love the outdoors, you will adore living here. The two main parks are Community Park and Red Bridge Park. There are playgrounds, walking paths, ball diamonds, and picnic areas available to the public. A new sports complex is available for use and lease.
Attractions and Activities
Just outside of town is a hidden gem called Strawntown Koteewi Park
. Covering 750 acres, the park offers a canoe launch, nature trails, wetlands, and prairies. It is one of the biggest attractions in the city.
If you are aching for a bit of the night life, head into nearby Indianapolis. You may not be able to find the hottest restaurants and clubs within your new city’s borders, but an exciting weekend can be found just a few miles down the road.
The most popular event in the area is the Lights Over Morse Lake Festival
. Held every July, the festival features vendors, pony rides, a zip line, caboose rides, a 5K walk or run, a parade, and sports tournaments. Area residents look forward to the festival each year.
