Independence Park

This 13.5-acre park boasts Indiana’s first all-accessible playground area for persons with disabilities. Independence Park was developed and constructed in 2000 with the help of more than 200 businesses, civic organizations and individuals. The park provides the only green space park located in White River Township and hosts thousands of visitors each year. The park accommodates those who enjoy walking and jogging as well as those who are there to walk their furry, four-legged friends. The park playground was remodeled in 2020, and continues to serve hundreds of people each day. The playground also features an interactive Yalp SONA Arch, which was grant funded by A Kid Again, Indianapolis, and the NBA All Star Legacy Grant. This arch is the first of its kind in Indiana! We hope that you can visit soon!
