6 Acres

Gather, Relax, and Play

The City of Noblesville envisioned Federal Hill Commons as a vibrant gateway to its historic downtown, sparking development and offering recreational opportunities. Through collaborative planning, including stakeholder engagement, we transformed the park into a central hub for community gatherings, events, and markets, fostering a lively atmosphere year-round.

A Versatile Design Approach

Our design for the six-acre property features Market Plaza, hosting the City’s Farmers’ Market and a new 5,000-seat outdoor performance venue. With movable seating and space for an ice-skating rink in winter, the plaza offers year-round programming. Emphasizing ecological responsibility, native plantings and water management systems reduce pollution in the adjacent White River, while recycled materials and durable construction ensure sustainability and longevity.

Seamless Integration

By preserving mature trees and matching materials with neighboring historic districts, we’ve created a site that feels both rooted in history and relevant to today’s visitors.


Children can unleash their creativity by making music on the stage’s interactive wall of instruments.

Family Friendly

To ensure a unique play experience within the park’s beauty, an artistic playground was created. It maximizes space, enabling parents to enjoy events while supervising their children.
