About the Friends

The purpose of the Friends is to promote, protect, and nurture Broad Ripple Park as an historic, natural, and recreational resource on behalf of the community at large.

The Friends of Broad Ripple Park clear invasive plants from the 10-Acre Woods, give summer camp scholarships, provide summer flowers for the swimming pool, engage people with White River, lead park cleanups, and maintain the pollinator gardens. We also facilitate fundraising for improvements like new benches overlooking White River, pickle ball striping on the tennis courts, and new split rail fencing at the Evanston Avenue entrance.

Donate to and join the Friends.
