Follow Indy Parks into Fall
Check out the Fall Fun Guide for upcoming activities, programs and more
September 01, 2011Follow the leader of FUN with Indy Parks! With the kids back in school, The Fall Fun Guide is your path to a season of smiles, a mountain of memories, and a lifetime of laughs. Explore our programs and amenities spread across more than 11,400 acres and most of them right in your neighborhood.
Little gardeners will grow up to be big gardeners with a healthy appreciation for growing, creating and exploring after attending the "Little Gardener Series" at Broad Ripple Park. Design bird houses and feeders, press flowers and leaves for bookmarks, craft a piece of artwork from seeds, or instead of taking a bite out of an apple, use it to make apple prints and chips.
As the leaves start to fall, your curious kid can head to the Garfield Park Conservatory for a walk in the park. Or lace up some old shoes and start stomping at Eagle Creek Park during a wet and wild adventure.
Playtime is Game Time
Keep your energetic little ones fully entertained with Indy Parks' classes like Tumbling and Cheer; Ballet and Tap; Karate Kids; and Hip Hop. Your child will twist and turn, jump and squat and move to the music at these classes taught by well-qualified instructors and develop strength and coordination, plus build self-confidence and discipline. Your Fun Guide will have a list of locations and times to meet your needs.
Discover your child's creative side with Indy Parks Arts for All series. During the 100 Years of Indy Parks Celebration, the Garfield Park Arts Center will travel to different family centers to bring a fun, hands-on art activity to each community. Commemorate 100 Years of Indy Parks with a clay tile imprinted with our special logo. Families will roll up their sleeves to knead, shape and mold the tiles into keepsakes and permanent memories of your family fun.
