Carey Grove Park to Close in Mid-May for Planned Improvements
Park Updates Part of Clay Township Impact Program Investment
Carmel, Ind. (April 13, 2020) – In mid-May Carey Grove Park will close to undergo planned improvements as part of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s Reimagining Parks initiative. Through this initiative, CCPR is working to update and enhance existing parks in order to make them more accessible, safer and available year-round.
Improvements will include playground updates, a new restroom facility, parking lot expansion and trail expansion. The park will reopen after construction is completed in December.
The Clay Township Impact Program is funding these improvements. Over the next three years, the Clay Township Impact Program will fund improvements to six parks in our community with a focus on parks and public safety. These improvements will provide benefits for all township residents, schools and businesses, and make our community a better place to live, work and play.

If you visit the park before its closure, please continue using social distancing while utilizing the trails.
