It consists of 128 acres of land that feature trails, a conservatory, a sunken garden, beautiful fountains, a playground, a pagoda, an arts center, an outdoor stage, a recreation center, an outdoor aquatic center, and facilities for sports such as tennis and baseball. If you're wanting to enjoy a day outdoors in Indianapolis, Garfield Park is one of the best places to visit.
