About Juan Solomon Park

Acquired in 1971, this 41-acre park is named for Juan Solomon, son of a Methodist minister and schoolteacher. Juan Solomon was highly involved in civic activities within the Indianapolis African-American Community. Some of Solomon’s civic posts included serving as director of the Community Service Council, Indianapolis Urban League, and was a board member of the Indianapolis Department of Parks and Recreation. Solomon was employed for 32 years by Eli Lilly and led the mayor’s task force on employment.  

Established in 1971 and consisting of 42.38 acres, Juan Solomon is located on the north side of Indianapolis. This park offers a covered shelter, newly renovated playground equipment, tennis courts, soccer fields, and ample parking.
