Noblesville Parks Foundation

We Believe Parks Are More Than Just a Place.
Our mission is to support the City of Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department –
Its programs, the people it serves, and the place it provides our citizens, neighbors, and visitors. 

Our park system is 876 acres of land across 7 developed parks. These parks are places where a new mom brings her toddler to experience the first zoom down the slide.
A place where a busy dad slows down on a walk to recharge with nature.
Or where friends meet up to laugh and listen to music in the park. 

Our parks are our places. Where we have experiences. Where we reflect and recharge. Where we connect. Noblesville Parks are more than a place, they are our places.

Our parks are here to serve everyone. But it takes care, funding, and forward planning to keep them equitable. The Noblesville Parks Foundation exists to ensure our parks continue to thrive as places that welcome, serve, and connect us all.
