About Municipal Gardens

Municipal Gardens, located on the west side of Indianapolis, contains one of Indy Parks’ oldest recreation centers. Prior to its opening as a public park in 1952, Municipal Gardens served as a private canoe and yacht club, as well as a popular dance hall. The building was originally constructed in 1920. Municipal Gardens now serves a diverse range of residents including seniors, youth, and persons with disabilities. 

Municipal Gardens also features a game room, gym, weight room, playground, covered shelter and a splash pad. Rental opportunities include outdoor basketball court, shelter, indoor gym, kitchen, game room and a beautiful Ballroom. 

The playground at Municipal Gardens is being replaced in 2024 thanks to funding from the American Rescue Plan.
