Hello Fishers! 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!
Here are 5 reasons you should visit Cyntheanne Park:
- The playground: Featuring an Evos playground by Landscape Structures which promotes unstructured play, continual movement, and physical fitness for children of all ages.
- Pickleball Courts: 4 courts were constructed in 2015 with an additional 4 coming online in 2019 with help from many generous donations. Place your paddle in the queue and get in line because these courts are hopping! Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the nation and Fishers has a very active pickleball community.
- The trails: Circling the 5 multi-purpose sports fields is a 1 mile paved trail as well as a nature trail through natural tall grass.
- The garden plots: Take a walk through 40 community garden plots and make a plan to rent your own next season. Plots are 10×10′ or several 4×9′ raised plots are available.
- Special Events: Cyntheanne Park has the largest parking lot of Fishers Parks which make it a great space to host special events like Mud Day, sports tournaments, and more.
While there are of course many more than 5 reasons to visit any of our parks, I hope this list inspires you to visit Cyntheanne Park soon!
Sarah Sandquist is the previous Director of Fishers Parks and was 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.
