Indianapolis and the surrounding areas are home to some of the best parks and playgrounds in the world. Kids love parks, adults love parks, pets love parks — and the FREE price tag isn’t too shabby either.

With great parks surrounded by the big city, enclosed in nature, set upon the White River and even with working farms, there are so many public spaces to explore with or without your kids.

This is part of our Parks and Playgrounds series. We’ll highlight parks all over Central Indiana that are a top destination for local and visiting families. Thanks to Womack Restaurants, we’ll help fuel your trip and help you find the perfect lunch or dinner spot on your next big adventure.
