Broad Ripple Park is a 61-acre park on the northeast side of Indianapolis, bordering the White River. It offers a wide variety of programs and activities for all ages, and welcomes an estimated 150,000 visitors annually. The Family Center schedules scores of classes throughout the year in dance, safety, sports, fitness, arts, crafts, health, self-defense and other subjects for all age groups. Programs are generally fee-based, and registration is usually required.

In addition to the Family Center, Broad Ripple Park facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, baseball diamond, multi-use athletic fields, playground, picnic shelters and areas, a viewing platform over the White River, a bark park, a wooded preserve, a walking/jogging/running/bicycling and fitness path, and a boat ramp to the White River.

The park has a rich history in the community as the home of a 1920s amusement park, carousel (now at the Indianapolis Children's Museum), a steam locomotive (now at the Transportation Museum in Noblesville), and as the location of the Olympic tryouts for swimming in 1924 and 1952.

A really big, nice park. Lots of room to run, some exercises are available, and some playground equipment. They host a fair number of events too.

I love it here. People that visit are always active and smiling. Nice place to bring the kids to play in the playground or the fur babies to play in the bark park.

Nice, clean ,quiet, well kept landscape, the playground was kid busy, as it should be, the pool seemed relaxed not too crowded, boating and fishing is nearby on White River and the dog park is a very nice addition for ur fluffy friends. Overall it was a fun time.

Great deal of playground equipment, shaded picnic tables, walk paths, parking, etc. Clean area and empty trashcans with trashbags! First park I have seen this clean and nice in the Indianapolis area in a long time. Definitely will be going back for another lunch hour
