Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) connects the community with nature! CCPR manages and maintains over 500 acres of park land. Throughout Carmel, you will find 13 parks and 4 greenways offering greenspace, playgrounds, access to natural resources, and education through interpretive signage.
We are dedicated to maintaining and improving our parks, and ensuring our community – that’s you! – understands their role in our natural resources both today and in the future.
Park Stewardship gives the community an opportunity to play a larger part in maintaining and developing our natural resources and better understand our parks. Through Park Stewardship programming, events and volunteering the community is invited to get out to the park to explore, engage and connect by planting trees, identifying species at a BioBlitz event and so much more.
