The town features plenty of great parks, including an ice rink, sledding hill and, coming in 2022, a new splash pad. There are also brand new ball fields for everyone, whether playing slow pitch, baseball or softball. The parks offer many amazing programs and events for all ages, including Community Markets, Youth Summer Camps and Summerfest. Dyer has experienced steady commercial growth, with wonderful new restaurants and stores, and it is home to a hospital and many medical facilities to meet the needs of residents.

Along with all of the great amenities, the town of Dyer is always improving to provide the best for the community. Within just the past few years, every roadway in the community has been rehabilitated. Currently, the town is working to eliminate all storm water issues from residential subdivisions, and they are completing a major water infrastructure project to ensure a second potable water source to Lake Michigan water.
