There’s no question that Garfield Park is tops on our list of our favorite Indy Parks. It’s close to our home, it’s huge and it offers so much when it comes to art and nature exploration. During the warmer months our favorite evening stop is to see the ever changing sunken gardens and the lighted fountains.
The simple changing colors of lights under the water add to the beauty of the gardens and my kids enjoy racing around the sidewalk paths, collecting fallen treasures from the trees and pointing out the colors.
Every night May(ish) through September, the fountains at the Sunken Gardens in Garfield Park are lit in a pattern of changing colors. Gates are open until 10 p.m.. You won’t hear any music for this light and water “show” but the summer sounds and laughter of your kids just might be more than enough.
Take a stroll in the early evening near the Children’s Garden and see some of the cool gardens for kids (alphabet garden, rainbow garden and more). The main garden will likely be locked but the outer parts are great too! Our favorite spring event is the Keep What You Pull Tulip Dig.
