Babe Denny Park


Babe Denney Park may only be a little over an acre, but it sits just south of Lucas Oil Stadium providing great views of the stadium and a spot to bring the kids on Colts’ gamedays and other sporting events. The downtown park established back in 1923 provides a playground, basketball court, and shelters.  

The park is scheduled to receive a new playground by 2026 thanks to funding from the Lilly Endowment.
