Riverside Park

One of Indy’s oldest parks with wide variety of activities

Located just five miles from downtown Indianapolis, Riverside Regional Park offers 861 acres (that’s larger than New York’s Central Park!) filled with amenities including a boat launch, river views, playgrounds, basketball, tennis courts, an outdoor pool, horseshoe pit, shelters for gatherings, golf, and more. With the river flowing through its heart, Riverside Park is surrounded by rich history with the historic Riverside neighborhood to the east and the campus of Marian University to its northwest.
