River Heritage Park
River Heritage Park was developed in 1998-1999. Whether you’re taking a relaxing walk through nature or hanging out with the kids, River Heritage has much to offer. There’s something for everyone!
Within this 40-acre park there are sand volleyball courts, and an enormous playground that includes handicap-accessible play features, swing sets, slides and more.
River Heritage is a great setting for all types of events. The park has a large, rentable shelter with grills and plenty of places to sit.
Looking to get off the beaten path? Take a relaxing walk through the wooded area that leads to the White River.
Thanks to the Clay Township Impact Program, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation is helping the community by updating and enhancing its parks to become more accessible, safer and available year-round.
We are currently in the planning stages for the improvements coming to River Heritage Park in 2021. The projected budget for this park’s upgrades is $3.0m. Upgrades are set to include:
– Parking Lot
Due to these major park improvements, this park will be closed while under construction for the safety of visitors. Stay tuned for closure details.
