Public Spaces

The four-mile stretch of Fall Creek in mid-north Indy is key to our community’s health and economic well-being. As part of the Mid-North Quality of Life Plan, we work with neighbors and partner organizations to transform it into a recreational, residential, and commercial destination.

We asked hundreds of community members for ideas, then used their input to create the Destination Fall Creek Implementation Plan. As we put our plan into action, we are redesigning streets, crosswalks, and traffic patterns to make transportation safer and more convenient for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers.

We are focusing on four target areas:

Fall Creek Greenway: We built a trailhead to Fall Creek Greenway at 38th Street, transforming an underused space into a community asset.

Monon Trail: We are adding ADA-accessible entryways, landscaping, sidewalks, signs, seating areas, and flood walls to the Monon Trail. These updates make the trail safe and accessible for all neighbors.

Delaware Street Intersection: We added crosswalks, trails, and a plaza to the intersection at the corner of Delaware Street and Fall Creek Parkway. We also selected Scott Westphal’s Silver Fall II monument to mark the gateway.

Meridian Street Corridor: We are updating the Meridian Street corridor to make it safer and more pleasant. We added new landscaping and ADA-accessible walkways. We’re also adding a tree-lined plaza, urban gardens, and outdoor seating to invite people outside.
