About Tolin-Akeman Park

Tolin-Akeman is a 5.8-acre neighborhood park on the southeast side of Indianapolis, first established in 1989. The park was named in honor of Earl Tolin and his father Jerry Akeman, whose family had owned the land since 1895. The land was donated in 1988 under the condition that it always be used as a park. Earl Tolin, a dedicated educator for 48 years, and Jerry Akeman, an IMPD detective sergeant, exemplified a commitment to community service throughout their esteemed careers. This park stands as a testament to their legacy, a place where the spirit of community continues. 

Amenities include a playground with a ramp and slides, swing set, covered shelter and grills, benches, and a large plot of greenspace for picnic or play.
