About the proposed Community Center

Broad Ripple Park has a rich history of hosting iconic public events for more than a century. Friends of Broad Ripple Park’s (FBRP) mission is to support, supplement and share Broad Ripple Park as an historic, natural and recreational resource on behalf of the community at large.

FBRP was actively involved in the process to shape the park’s future, and our group provided an official endorsement of the 2018 Broad Ripple Park Master Plan. FBRP believes this is the best path forward for making desperately needed improvements to allow people to safely enjoy all the park has to offer while maintaining public ownership of the space.

Recycling area cleanup

It was chilly and sunny the morning of January 5, 2019 as seven volunteers worked from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to clean up the Broad Ripple Park recycling area. Many thanks to Joanne Durbin who initiated the event. Thanks also go to Carl Scott, who saw the post on Next Door Neighborhood, and Barbara Ralston, who happened by on a walk and asked how she could help. (We had plenty of brooms, rakes, shovels and trash bags!) Friends of Broad Ripple Park volunteers included Mary Crowley, Kathy Rosenberg, Morgan Bennett (who made seven or eight trips to the front parking lot, hauling the 30 Christmas trees dumped in the recycling area), and Tom McCain.
