Welcome to The Essex Park Neighborhood!

Essex Park was named after the U.S.S. Essex, which was the ship commanded by Captain David Porter
(for whom Porter County was named) in the "Battle of Valparaiso" during the War of 1812.
"The Essex," a sister ship of the U.S.S. Constitution (Old Ironsides,) was built in Salem, Massachusetts and paid for by the public subscription from the citizens of Essex County.
The names of the various streets in Essex Park are all towns in Essex County, Massachusetts.


Our semiannual Homeowner's meeting is planned for Saturday, June 8 at 1:00 outside at the Pergola on Danvers Parkway, weather permitting. 2024 Events have recently been added to the Essex Park calendar. Please look them over and add the activities that you enjoy to your personal calendar. Your yearly HOA dues of $275 including late fees can begin being paid by check to Essex Park H.O.A., P.O. Box 249, Valparaiso, IN 46384 or online for a fee. There is either a bell or 3lines in the upper right of this page that you can click on to activate the payment page. Late fees were assessed if not paid by May 1, 2024. We operate on a bare bones budget so it is important that everyone pays their fare share. Thank you for your cooperation.

Note that the HOA Board is always seeking volunteers to help with special projects. We are a totally volunteer board. Please do not contact us to mediate disputes with neighbors. Feel free to read our covenants and bylaws. We are only authorized to confront residents if any of those are violated. Violations of city codes need to be brought up with the city, not the HOA Board.

Please Do Not Park on the side of the street where there are mailboxes. 



We would appreciate if all residents would register with our website. Registered residents of our community will be able to be updated on activities occurring in our neighborhood.

Thank you,

Essex Park Home Owners Association
