Noblesville, Indiana|Community

After leading a master planning process to develop a comprehensive vision for the park, we created a design for the six-acre property with space to accommodate the Noblesville Farmers’ Market and a new 5,000-seat outdoor performance venue.

The main plaza features an interactive water feature, market stalls, and moveable seating. Permeable pavement and bioswales discreetly filter stormwater in the parking areas before it flows to the river. Amongst the park’s buildings – which include public restrooms and a concessions / storage facility – and new pedestrian paths, a story wall creatively interprets the history of the community.

As a gateway to Noblesville’s historic downtown, the park draws in visitors with community events, play areas, and flourishing green spaces. It accommodates the city’s rapidly growing population, making it a catalyst for nearby development and establishing it as a community centerpiece.
