W.S. Gibbs Memorial Park

The master plan for W.S. Gibbs Memorial Park, adopted by the Hendricks County Park Board on September 4, 2013, was the culmination of a lengthy community planning process establishing a collective vision for W. S. Gibbs Memorial Park as a centerpiece of the Hendricks County Parks system that will serve Hendricks County residents and visitors for generations.

The 140-acre parcel of land is located on Gibbs Road, south of County Road 200 S., in the southwest portion of Washington Township.

The master plan unifies a park designed in harmony with its natural systems, a place that accommodates a wide variety of community events and recreational activities unique to the region, a design that recalls the site’s rich agricultural heritage while looking to its future as a key community recreational asset, and a place that promotes active, healthy lifestyles for all ages.

In November of 2019, the Hendricks County Park Board approved the final concept for Phase I development of the park, which was designed by Green 3 Studio and Civil Engineering Consultants (CECON).

Phase I will encompass the park entrance, drive, parking, green space, picnic areas, a pond, trails, and a playground. Future phases will add additional amenities.

Construction of W.S. Gibbs Memorial Park is scheduled to begin in 2020.
