Summer Fun at Indy Parks

Summer has begun at Indy Parks, and our entire team is ready. From pools to spray grounds, summer concerts and movies to bike riding more than 135 miles of trails, Indy Parks has endless possibilities for summer fun.

Bethel Park, Frederick Douglass Park, Perry Park, Riverside Park, and Willard Park pools are now open Tuesday-Sunday from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 1:30-4 p.m., and 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Twenty spray grounds are also open daily with colorful water features and spaces to discover.

Our free Summer Concert and Movie series continues at Broad Ripple Park, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park, Garfield Park, and Eagle Creek Park. Virtual performances will also be available on the Indy Parks YouTube channel. Visit @IndyParksConcerts on Facebook for the full schedule.

Indy Parks is also continuing its Summer Meal Service in locations around Marion County. Summer Meal Service is open to all youth 18 and under, with Second Helpings providing sandwiches for adults at some locations. With more than 80,000 meals served since March 16, Indy Parks is proud to serve individuals and their families during this time.

Indy Parks is now requiring park visitors to follow the most recent Marion County Public Health Department Public Health Order to enter park facilities and pool areas. The Public Health Order, which went into effect July 9, requires individuals to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces and in outdoor public spaces where social distancing is not possible. Day campers and pool visitors must follow the guidelines except while swimming, diving, or entering/using a water slide. Per the Public Health Order, the mandate does not apply to children ages 2 and younger or to individuals who are engaged in a form of indoor/outdoor exercise that is incompatible with wearing a face covering.

As you visit parks, playgrounds, trails, and park spaces, we remind you to practice social distancing and CDC recommended personal hygiene guidelines such as staying home if you are sick, washing your hands or using hand sanitizer, and avoiding crowded areas. We also encourage you to stay updated on new guidelines and park programs and activities. Together, we can make sure our spaces are healthy and safe.
