West Park to Partially Close in Late Summer for Planned Improvements
Park Updates Part of Clay Township Impact Program Investment
Carmel, Ind. (August 10, 2020) – On or after August 24, 2020, the main entrance to West Park and the southern half of the trail system, including the pond boardwalks, will be closed to the public due to planned improvements. The Jill Perelman Pavilion and the adjacent adventure playground in the woods will remain open and accessible.
Upgrades to West Park include replacement of the existing splash pad and playground in the original section of the park, renovation of the restroom building and main shelter, and improvements to the roadway and parking facilities. The park will fully reopen after construction is completed in summer 2021.
The West Park improvements are funded jointly by the Carmel/Clay Board of Parks and Recreation and the Clay Township Impact Program as part of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s Reimagining Parks initiative. Through this initiative, CCPR is updating and enhancing six existing parks to make them more accessible, safer and available year-round. These projects 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 physical distancing.
