With 212 parks, 11,254 acres, four dog parks and 135 miles of trails, there\u2019s always something to discover in Indy Parks. As families ease into their fall routines, our team is ready to show off our fall offerings and special events.\u00a0 We recently rolled out our fall programs, giving park visitors everything from dance and art to cooking and martial arts. We\u2019re bringing back favorites, such as Holliday Park\u2019s Beastly Brunch and Hauntless Halloween, Garfield Park Conservatory\u2019s Jungle Tales, and Gingerbread house building at Broad Ripple Park. Making their debut this fall, Robotics at Bethel Park, Painting with Pride at Pride Park, Cooking with Kids at Riverside Park and Red Maple Park\u2019s Bicentennial Community Day.\u00a0Many programs will provide virtual and in person opportunities, as well. Another popular service that makes our staff so proud is the meal program. In partnership with Second Helpings and the U.S. Department of Education, Indy Parks offers after school and summer servings meal programs. Since March 16, Indy Parks has provided more than 156,000 meals to families around Marion County. Annually, Indy Parks serves close to 390,000 free meals to youth and adults. With the severity of COVID-19, Indy Parks has expanded its meal service to continue offering much-needed meals to residents who may otherwise go hungry. Through a sponsorship with Verizon, Indy Parks will bring facilities key items, such as coolers, freezers, ice packs and other meal-related costs to offer the summer meal service. And we cannot forget about our pools. Although the summer season has ended, we are making plans to open Indy Island, Krasner and Thatcher indoor pools in September. We had a fabulous summer, and are on our way to an even better fall thanks to you, your neighbors and fellow park visitors.\u00a0 As you visit our park spaces, we encourage you to practice social distancing and adhere to the health department\u2019s face covering order (when you are not able to social distancing and when you are not actively exercising or swimming).
