Meadowlark Park is situated in the heart of Carmel’s Arts & Design District. The 19-acre park was first established in 1995 and underwent a full transformation in 2022.
The completely reimagined playground caters to children aged 2-12, boasting dreamlike and artistic designs. Given Meadowlark’s location, incorporating artistic elements was important to pay tribute to Carmel’s Arts & Design District. The playground has big climbing structures resembling tall trees and smaller play areas resembling bushes and plants. With its artistic touch, Meadowlark Park provides fun for children of all ages.
Updates to this Hamilton County park include restrooms, picnic shelters, an updated parking lot, boardwalk and trails, pickleball courts, and a brand-new modern playground.
Meadowlark Park Playground
The new playground at Meadowlark Park features three big play structures for kids of all ages to enjoy. The structure for big kids includes geometric domes that kids can climb up to and through, and metal slides that send you back to the ground.
There’s also a play structure for climbers and parkour enthusiasts that features bridges to cross, monkey bars to swing from and other obstacles. The play structure for babies and young kids also invites tiny tots to climb, slide and explore, but everything is scales smaller for the youngest adventurers.
