About Rhodius Park

In 1913, the Board of Park Commissioners acquired the land for Rhodius Park through a generous bequest from the last will and testament of Mr. George Rhodius. The city enlisted the expertise of landscape architect and city planner George Kessler to design the park’s 25 acres. Originally, the community center stood on the park’s western boundary, later replaced in the 1990s by the modern Rhodius Park Family Center. 

Today, Rhodius park offers diverse recreational opportunities, featuring a gym, sensory room, dance, and community gathering spaces. The park also hosts William Penn-Indianapolis Public School #49, a swimming pool, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, playgrounds, sheltered picnic areas, walking trails, and extensive green space.
