We are 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, hiking trails, gardens, all-inclusive equipment, and splash pads, you are sure to find something for everyone. Westfield parks boast some of the largest and most unique playgrounds and are worth the drive north. Here are 13 must-visit parks and playgrounds in Westfield, Indiana.
Westfield Parks with Playgrounds
Branch out of your usual neighborhood parks and let the kids jump around and play on some new equipment. Head north and check out these awesome Westfield parks with playgrounds.
Grand Junction Plaza
225 S Union Street, Westfield
The newest of Westfield parks can be found at Grand Junction Plaza. The newest addition to downtown Westfield, Grand Junction Plaza brings everything wonderful about the community to one central location. Grand Junction Plaza truly is a one-stop shop for community events, family fun, and to release some energy at the unique playground. The plaza boasts an amphitheater, creek, restrooms, and a large playground all adjacent to downtown Westfield.
Cool Creek Park
2000 E 151st Street, Carmel
The big kid section and the toddler section of the Cool Creek Park playground are separated with a nice picnic shelter in the middle of the two playgrounds, providing a 360-degree view of all play spaces. With this layout, you can see every section of the park from the picnic shelter! Venture further back to the Cool Creek Nature Center and check out the woods for one of the best places to go hiking and creek stomping.
Asa Bales Park
205 W Hoover Street, Westfield
Asa Bales Park has something for everyone. Throughout the park, you will find an 18-tee disc golf course. On the North end, you’ll find a skate park and inclusive and accessible playground equipment. The path running North to South winds through grassy areas, shade trees, and over little bridges. Look for the awesome 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 Fourth, and more.
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 remember to bring your gear.
You will find plenty of shade, benches, and picnic tables throughout the park. Seasonally the splash pad is perfect for a refreshing cool down. 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 is just North of the park.
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 ages and abilities. 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 a 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.
Simon Moon Park
2710 E 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 down, 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 bonfire 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 restrooms and picnic shelters on-site.
Raymond Worth Park
6301 Little Eagle Creek Avenue, Westfield
The playset at Raymond Worth Park is great for kids to climb, slide, and run around. It’s situated on soft, green turf which is great after rain. Bring your creek stomping gear if the weather permits; Little Eagle Creek is easily accessible from here. 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.
21105 MacGregor Park Road, Westfield
MacGregor Park is quite a unique Westfield park. It has a wonderful dirt path for hiking and biking through the woods of the 96-acre park. Bring a map along if you want to find the cool stuff within the 1.4-mile loop in MacGregor Park.
Hop off the loop path and explore the internal trails for a variety of “eye-spy” game options. See if you can spy the peace pole, the ornament tree, the rain garden, or the life-size bird nest perfect for a photo op. Wildflower prairies and mature trees make this a wonderful trail to immerse yourself in nature. Bring along a Christmas ornament to leave on the famous ornament tree—the kids will love it!
Westfield Parks with Greenspace
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 Westfield parks without playgrounds are sure to be more secluded and tranquil. Follow the trails within the parks to connect to other Westfield trails and enjoy immersing yourself in nature.
