Carey Grove Park
Located on the Eastside of Carey Road just south of 146th Street in Carmel, Carey Grove Park is a beloved neighborhood park. This 5-acre park was originally developed from 1997-1998 and was fully reimagined in 2020.
The park is home to a playground, year-round bathrooms, permanent outdoor exercise equipment, resurfaced trails, a half-basketball court, and both a community and seasonal shelter.
The reimagined playground brings a whole new level of exploration and play to Carey Grove Park. The playground, the first of its kind in Indiana, is divided into two sections, one designed for kiddos ages 2-5 and one designed for ages 5-12. Kiddos will enjoy climbing, sliding, swinging, and more on this completely modernized playground.
Musical features are incorporated throughout the playground to make it our very first musical park. Not only are the musical features lovely to look at, but they also add a unique learning and exploratory component for park visitors.
Carey Grove Park is our very first park to have outdoor workout equipment! The park has three pieces of adult workout equipment that can be used at any time of year. There are two bikes and one elliptical. The workout equipment faces the playground so parents can work out while keeping an eye on their kiddos.
Carey Grove Park was reimagined thanks to the Clay Township Impact Program. Upgrades included two new playground structures, designed by Kompan, year-round restrooms, a larger parking lot, and trails. Take a look back at some of the documents we release throughout the construction process:
