Meadowlark Park

Meadowlark Park was developed in 1995. This 19-acre park is nestled behind apartments off of Main Street in Carmel.

There is a large playground and shelter with areas to sit and grill out.

Over two miles of trails, linking up to St. Vincent’s Hospital and the Monon Greenway, are great for walking . The interior park trail wraps around a pond that is annually stocked by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Species in the pond include sunfish, catfish and trout.

This park also offers a full basketball court and open turf area for recreational sports. All while being a stone’s throw to downtown Carmel.
