Holliday Park: A Natural Escape

Holliday Park is one of Indy’s oldest parks, spanning 94 acres of green space, hiking trails, playgrounds, a historic rock garden, and The Ruins, a unique attraction made from remnants of a 19th century New York City building. A free nature center is open daily. The wooded ravines are home to natural springs, a pond, easy engagement opportunities to the White River, and trees, shrubs and wildflowers.
