Belmont Beach

Site of a historic segregated swimming beach

During the era of segregated public parks and swimming pools, Black residents of Indianapolis found a naturally-sandy but heavily-polluted section of the White River just south of 16th Street in Indy as one of the few places they could access water recreation. The site, in Indy’s Haughville neighborhood, is now a public park.
