Parks & Greenways

Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation manages and maintains 14 parks and greenways throughout Carmel. In partnership with the Indiana Wildlife Federation (IWF), we are the first park system in the state of Indiana to be certified as wildlife and habitat friendly. 

All parks are open sunrise to sunset, except for approved activities.

The Parks Maintenance team is preparing the parks for the upcoming winter season and has made the following changes:

  • The splash pads at West Park, Inlow Park and West Commons in Central Park are closed for the season.
  • The portable toilets in Hazel Landing and Meadowlark Park have been removed for the season as of 10/17.
  • The restrooms at River Heritage Park and Inlow Park are closed for the winter season as of 11/4.
  • The drinking fountains at River Heritage, Inlow Park and Carey Grove are turned off for the season as of 11/4.
