Activity Overview

Military Park is the oldest urban park in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was first established in 1852 and was the site of the very first Indiana State Fair. Since 1979, Military Park has been a part of White River State Park, an immense park in the downtown area which is home to some of the city's top attractions, including museums, gardens, a zoo, and a baseball stadium. Today, visitors can still enjoy local festivals and events in Military Park, as well as use its 14-acre green space to play sports or enjoy a picnic.

Things to Do

  • Bring along a frisbee or a soccer ball and play a game with your family.
  • Go for a walk around this historic park which was once used as a Civil War encampment.
  • Check out the rest of White River State Park, where you can visit historic sites and museums, enjoy live music performances, see public artwork, and take advantage of vast green spaces.

Military Park Insider Tips

  • Check out the park's calendar to learn about upcoming festivals as well as events and new exhibitions at its many museums and cultural attractions that your family may want to attend.
  • If your child loves animals, don't miss the nearby Indianapolis Zoo which features over 200 animal species, including cheetahs, penguins, elephants, butterflies, and dolphins!
  • Save money by bringing along a picnic lunch to eat in Military Park instead of purchasing food from one of the many food vendors throughout the area.
