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.
Today we are going to explore Cumberland Park! From the roar of the crowd at youth soccer games to a relaxing walk in nature, Cumberland Park (10580 Cumberland Road) has something for everyone! The park is situated at the corner of 106th Street and Cumberland Road and boasts over 40 acres of play and adventure.
Here are 5 reasons you should visit Cumberland Park:
1. Soccer Fields
The park features seven manicured soccer fields that are home to youth soccer leagues run by the Mudsock Youth Athletics organization.
2. Disc Golf Couse
Grab your discs and try your hand at this technically difficult course running along Mud Creek. The 9-hole course has opportunities for both amateurs and professional dis golfers.
3. Picnic Shelter
Located near the park building, the large picnic shelter is available for rent to host your next birthday party, baby shower, or family gathering. Year-round restrooms are also located nearby.
Pack a picnic and come to Cumberland Park to utilize one of the grills that are spread throughout the park. Enjoy your picnic along scenic banks of Mud Creek.
5. Multi-Use Path
A half mile path meanders along the Mud Creek greenway and over a bridge. Bring your walking shoes and get some steps in while your child is at soccer practice!
While there are many more than just 5 reasons to visit any Fishers Park, I hope this list inspires you to visit Cumberland Park soon!
