The new playground design will take advantage of some of the park’s natural elements.

Holliday Park announced it’s reimagining its beloved playground to create a more “inclusive, engaging, versatile, and vibrant commons.”

The Holliday Park Foundation, the City of Indianapolis, Indy Parks, and design team REA are teaming up to redesign and refresh the playground at the south end of the park.

Some major elements of the project include:

  • Entry court to welcome visitors to the space
  • A central lawn and shelter gathering area within view of the play spaces
  • Social play space for toddlers
  • Timber tower and climbing structures
  • Nature exploration
  • Hillside climbing and slides utilizing the natural topography of the site

The project budget is $6 million and the Holliday Park Foundation has received an initial contribution of $3 million from the Lilly Endowment. It’s using a fundraising campaign for the balance of the project cost.
