We manage and maintain more than 700+ park acres throughout Carmel, including 20 parks and greenways. In partnership with the Indiana Wildlife Federation (IWF), we are the first park system in the state of Indiana to be certified as wildlife and habitat-friendly.
Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, walking, playing, or running, our parks have fun for everyone! Amenities include playgrounds, splash pads, park shelters, restrooms, greenspace and more
In addition, we have partnered with Carmel Clay Schools to establish Extended School Enrichment (ESE), an after-school care program for K-6 students located at all 11 Carmel elementary schools. The Summer Camp Series is a component of ESE that offers 13 different summer camps accommodating children ages 5-15.
