In 2021, the Friends of Broad Ripple Park decided to create a series of videos about all the wonderful features of our favorite park and engaged local Videographer Hannah Lindgren to create the lovely videos linked below.
This project truly has been a labor of love inspired and led by Master Gardener Mary Durkin. The result is a season-long series of blooms that are a-buzz with happy pollinators of all shapes and sizes.
Broad Ripple Park sits on the banks of Central Indiana’s primary environmental feature, the White River. In this video, Executive Director Scott Salmon of the Friends of the White River talks about this lovely natural resource and all it has to offer.
10 Acre Woods
Tucked along the eastern boundary of the park, next to the tennis courts and the softball field, this woodlot is a high-quality forest featuring many beautiful native trees and spring wildflowers. Land Stewardship Ecologist Jacob Brinkman describes its natural beauty.
Laughter and splashing define the summer season as happy visitors enjoy the pool. Assistant Park Manager Ashley Greene and Pool Manager Alyssa Stewart tell us more about providing such a wonderful service for the community.
Broad Ripple Park ranks as a signature park because it offers so many spaces and activities that a broad spectrum of citizens can enjoy. Listen as Park Manager Kathy Fitzgerald tells us more.
Garlic Mustard Pulls
Each spring, the Friends of Broad Ripple Park host invasive plant clearing efforts as we try to maintain the natural beauty of the Ten Acre Woods. Come along as volunteers bend their backs to remove destructive garlic mustard each spring. Supporting volunteer groups include Broad Ripple Kiwanis and the Broad Ripple Farmers Market.
