We’ve been out exploring parks all year long. We have our go-to favorites where we are regulars but then there are the days that we want to try something new or we’re visiting a friend who knows of a great space for the kids to play! Here are 10 playgrounds near Indianapolis that you should check out!
Coxhall Children’s Garden in Carmel is the perfect place for kids with BIG imaginations. The beautiful gardens and activities will keep children and their adults busy for a long time. The playhouses and building facades provide hours of fun!
Stout Field Park is the first park we’ve ever visited that has electronic games and exercise equipment! If your kids love to climb, this is the perfect space for your family. Plus, a great splash pad for warm summer days!
Cool Creek Park has a nature center, hiking trails, a creek for creek stomping and a whole lot of fun for all ages.
Holliday Parkis a favorite for many area families — the indoor nature center, Habitat Hall provides a lot of hands on fun and learning, the ruins are a great point of interest and the wide open spaces are perfect for little explorers…and big ones too!
Independence Park in Greenwood has the goal of letting all children play together, no matter their abilities or age. This accessible playground even has an inclusive basketball area and musical instruments!
Running, jumping, climbing, splashing, hiking, rolling down hills, West Park in Carmel is the best for all of these activities. This farm themed park is a hit with most age groups. Don’t miss the wildflower maze in the summer months.
