Grand Junction Plaza, located in downtown Westfield, is now open! This unique six-acre park features lots of public green space, trails, an amphitheater, and a children’s play area with a playground.
Children’s Play Area at Grand Junction Plaza
The playground at Grand Junction Plaza is a great place for families to play. The playground includes a huge play structure, with lots of opportunities to climb on the many ropes courses and nets that make up the main structure. A small, self-propelled merry-go-round and other riding features make up the playground for big kids.
For younger kids, the playground also includes a smaller climbing structure that sits lower to the ground. The whole playground is lined with soft, cushiony Astroturf.
Walking, Running and Biking Trails
Grand Junction Plaza is easily accessible to Hamilton County trails, including The Monon, Midland Trace Trail and Natalie Wheeler Trail, which run right through the park.
More Improvements to Come
While the park is officially open to the public, additional elements of the park will open in stages. Visitors will be able to enjoy ice skating next winter, and over the next several years, the stage will evolve into a covered bandshell amphitheater.
“The future is bright for downtown Westfield,” said Mayor Andy Cook. “With the opening of Grand Junction Plaza, our city now has a center, a heart, where people can connect.”
A public opening celebration will take place in early 2022 with other events to follow throughout the year.
