I’m Sarah Sandquist, Director of Fishers Parks. Fishers has 24 parks spread throughout the City, ranging in size and function from pocket parks like Cheeney Creek Nature Area to larger parks like Holland Park and Brooks School Park. Each park has its own character and there is something for everyone!
One of the City’s most frequented parks, Brooks School Park (11780 Brooks School Road) is known for its many inclusive ways to play and explore in Fishers. Tucked just southeast of the Sandstone subdivision at 116th Street and Brooks School Road, the park totals 16.5 acres of fun for all ages and abilities.
Here are 5 reasons you should visit Brooks School Park!
1. The Playground
Brooks School Park features an inclusive, ADA-accessible playground. With twenty-one different activities to explore, including slides, bridges, a sensory play area with instruments, and climbing rocks situated on a rubberized surface, the playground is accessible for all ability levels.
3. The Born Learning Trail
The trail is a series of 10 activities that offer fun, active learning for young children and their families. Activity signs can be found along the quarter-mile trail that circles the park.
While there are many more than just 5 reasons to visit any Fishers Park, I hope this list inspires you to visit Brooks School Park soon!
Sarah Sandquist is the Director of Fishers Parks and has been with the department since 2018. She loves bringing her two sons to Fishers Parks and special events like concerts and the Farmers’ Market. Her favorite park is Roy G. Holland Park, although the new AgriPark might knock Holland out of 1st place! In her spare time, she enjoys running, cooking, and spending time with her family.
