Acquiring land for a park in northwest Carmel is a top priority of CCPR’s 2020-2024 Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Prior to this acquisition, West Park was the only park west of U.S. 31. We are excited to offer a park close to home for our community in northwest Carmel!
Initial park development will likely take place in the next two to five years. The first step will be to develop a park master plan, which will guide the future development of the park. Creation of the master plan is typically a nine- to 12-month process and involves significant public input. We will host community meetings to identify public needs and discuss multiple park concepts.
Park features could include access to Bear Creek, restored prairie, wooded areas, playgrounds, splash pads, and trails, although exact amenities will be determined by the master plan.
Prior to park development CCPR will need to secure necessary funding, which is estimated at $6.5 million in 2020 dollars based on recent construction projects.
We will keep the public informed with new developments regarding this new property.
