We are seriously so blessed to live in an area with such amazing parks and playgrounds. Central Indiana has countless parks that are perfect for fun in any season. From sledding hills, trails, gardens, all-inclusive equipment and splash pads you are sure to find something for everyone.
Playgrounds and Parks in Westfield
Branch out of your usual neighborhood parks and let the kids roam a new environment. Check out these parks we love in Westfield.
Asa Bales Park
205 West Hoover Street, Westfield
The Asa Bales Park has something for everyone. On the North end you’ll find a skate park and all-inclusive playground equipment. Throughout this long, skinny park you will see an 18 tee disc golf course. The path running North to South winds through grassy areas, shade trees, and over little bridges. Check out the wooden swing that a pack of Eagle Scouts made.
This park is home to the state’s first outdoor fitness court where you can burn some calories and build those muscles. History buffs will want to see the 1845 Anti-Slavery cemetery where Asa Bales, his wife and slaves in unmarked graves have found their permanent resting spot. Restrooms are available and there is parking on both ends of the park. Asa Bales Park is home to many outdoor festivals too! In the past they have held a Spanish Heritage Festival, a Doggy-Donut Trail, Westfield Rocks the 4th of July and more.
Freedom Trail Park
500 Deer Walk Trace, Westfield
Freedom Trail Park is a hidden gem in Westfield. Tucked back behind a neighborhood near the high school it caters to kids of all age and ability. They have plenty of climbing, swinging and sliding options along with a ramp that goes all the way to the top of the playground. Nestled within the park is a sensory garden that makes a great escape from the usual playground equipment (and noises that come with it). The garden has soft brush to touch and hide in as well as man made teepees to rest in. Bring some buckets and shovels; the sand table is the perfect height for littles to stand at or roll their wheelchair right up to.
Our kids also love making music with the musical pipes hung near the play area and rock climbing on a giant rock. We have friends who love to geocache and this park is a hot spot. You’ll find plenty of picnic tables and benches to rest on and have a snack but be warned the only restroom available is a port-a-potty in the parking lot.
17501 Dartown Road, Westfield
With teeter totters, companion swings, small scale climbing structures and little slides, Quaker Park is a toddler wonderland. And it’s all situated on brightly colored soft surface ground. Big kids won’t mind tagging along though; they have a huge rope climbing dome apparatus and a round flying saucer rope swing our kids love. We love the hammock too; perfect for reading a book. There is a bocce ball court and pickle ball courts so bring your gear.
You will find plenty of shade, benches, and picnic tables throughout the park. Seasonally the Splash Pad is perfect for a fun cool down (updated features open in May 2021). There are restrooms in a little building near the playground. Also, noteworthy; if your kids like rescue vehicles there is a good chance you will see and hear firetrucks and ambulances heading out on a call. The fire station just North of the park.
Simon Moon Park
2710 East 171st Street, Westfield
This park offers a unique experience for kids of any age, any time of year. The little playground is adorable with small structures to climb and slide, a fun teeter totter and monkey bars and even a “horse” to ride. The little houses are perfect for pretend play. Scan the QR codes to see features come to life or to hear a fairy tale.
Simon Moon Park has cement corn hole “boards” set up (bring your own bags) and a permanent fire pit surrounded by benches. The bon fire pit is frequently the gathering spot for “fireside tales”, a story, and craft experience for kids. It’s also a great escape when you need a break from the huge sledding hill and a chance to warm up. In the summer they have a summer sledding event creating a HUGE water slide with the help of the fire department and a gigantic tarp you can skim down!
Grab a book from the little free library; this park has plenty of spots to rest and get out of the sun. The paved trail connects to several other Westfield trails and they have a port-a-potty on site.
Raymond Worth Park
6301 Little Eagle Creek Avenue, Westfield
This is a brand new playground in an already established park. The playset at Raymond Worth Park is great for kids to climb and slide and run around. It’s situated on soft, green turf which is great after a rain. Bring your creek stomping gear if the weather permits; access to Little Eagle Creek is easy to get to. Hop on one of the trails and you may run into a horse or two; the surrounding houses are allowed to ride their own horses along the trails in this park. No restrooms as of yet, but they are on the list.
Westfield Greenspace Parks
Westfield also offers plenty of greenspace if you want to kick around a ball, sit in nature and read a book or spread out a blanket and have a picnic. These parks without playgrounds are sure to be more secluded and quiet. Follow their trails and enjoy immersing yourself in nature.
