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!
Roy G. Holland Park, unofficially known as Holland Park, is Fishers’ first park. Originally constructed in 1991, it is a quintessential example of a multi-faceted park including athletics, greenspace, playgrounds, event areas, and rental facilities.
Here are 5 reasons you should visit Roy G. Holland Park!
1. The Splash Pad
Adjacent to the playground is a splash pad that was installed in 2015. It’s free to the public, open daily, and very popular on hot summer days!
2. The Playground
The new playground was installed in 2015 and features a poured in place rubber surface, accessible ramps and swings, a wheelchair-friendly glider, and friendship swing. The playground has equipment for both little ones and older kids.
3. The Volleyball Courts
With 20 tons of new sand shipped in each year, it’s like playing on a white sand beach!
4. The Walking Trail
Work on that daily step count with a walk or run around the 1.25-mile loop circling the park.
5. The Shelters
Pack a picnic to enjoy under one of two shelters at the park. Shelter 1 is next to the splash pad and is available first come, first serve while the splash pad is open. Shelter 2 is available to rent to host parties and family gatherings.
While there are many more than just 5 reasons to visit any Fishers Park, I hope this list inspires you to visit Holland 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.
