Taylor’s Dream Boundless Playground

7225 North River Road, Fort Wayne, IN

Experience Indiana’s first Boundless Playground! The idea is to allow children the opportunity to enjoy unstructured play, which helps their social and physical development. And this park has a space for everyone: An Alpha pod for children ages 2-5, a Gamma Pod for children ages 5-12, and a Beta Pod for all ages. The state-of-the-art equipment includes the world’s first outdoor electronic playground, a fossilized T-Rex, and an AeroGlider.

Williams Park

940 S Locust Ln, Brownsburg, IN

Williams Park is known for its Blast-Off Playground, a large, newly painted wooden play structure. This idea for this themed playground was conceived by the children of Brownsburg Community School Corporation, and their vision was brought to life with the assistance of more than 2,500 volunteers who worked to assemble the structure.

Lawrence W. Inlow Park

6310 E Main St, Carmel, IN

The newly remodeled Lawrence W. Inlow Park in Carmel is something out of a child’s wild imagination. The playground’s crowning feature is a “skywalk” that is so massive and tall that it can be seen from the street. The skywalk includes an enclosed, 32-foot long and 16-foot high rope walkway, banked by slides, and numerous rope climbing structures on either side.

West Park

This farm-themed park is a favorite in Central Indiana. Kids love the rural atmosphere that the Mill House and life-size farm equipment help convey. The Mill has multiple slides that lead to a giant spiderweb. No waiting in line for swings here – there are plenty to choose from. And parents will enjoy the serene garden surrounding the playground.
