Roy G. Holland Park is located in the heart of Fishers, and it is the park to visit in the city. From the fun playground and splash pad, to the sports fields, basketball courts and picnic area, this park offers a wide variety of amenities for all ages and abilities.
The playground at Roy G. Holland Memorial park is popular, and for a good reason: It’s huge and offers a variety of fun for everyone. The main playground structure is like a gigantic treehouse, and is divided into two sections: one for toddlers and one for bigger kids. The toddler section has ramps to walk up, monkey bars, two slides, a rope climbing area, and some tunnels to crawl under.
The big-kid section has twisty slides, a rock wall, a big fort, poles to slide down and lots of opportunities for climbing. Older kids can access the tower and must be able to climb a ladder to get to the top. Younger kids can easily access second level of the structure.
The playground structure also has ramps and bridges for wheelchair access, and a soft rubberized ground around the playground to cushion falls.
Other fun offerings on the playground include swings (there are even two-person swings for young kids), a reflex balance beam, and riding toys in the toddler area.
Splash Pad and Picnic Shelter
During the summer months, children can cool off at the splash pad, which is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The splash pad is located near the playground, and also near a picnic shelter. Parents can watch their children play in both areas from the shaded seating.
Walking Path and Sports Fields
A paved, 1.25-mile walking path goes all around the park, and is a popular loop for walkers and runners. Roy G. Holland Memorial Park also has a baseball/softball diamond, basketball courts, soccer field and a sand volleyball court. There is also a whole lot of open space to run or fly a kite.
Winter Farmers Market
In the winter, this park is home to the Fishers Winter Farmers’ Market, which takes place inside the park community building each Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The winter farmers market has more than two dozen central Indiana vendors selling seasonal produce, meat and eggs, handmade goods, and freshly baked bread.
