New to our parks in fall 2021 were Free Play Boxes! Installed at three of our parks, Free Play Boxes were created and are maintained by Mudsock Youth Athletics to encourage "free play" in our community.
Free Play Boxes use a similar concept as Little Free Libraries, where each box is filled with small sports equipment, like frisbees, balls, mits, etc., for anyone to use at no cost, then return once they're finished.
Right now, check out Free Play Boxes at Cumberland Park, Holland Park, and the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater.
A local artist was commissioned to paint each box in a theme that fits the park, and the boxes also serve as a fun photo opportunity for little ones.
More Free Play Boxes are on the horizon. Stay tuned to Fishers Parks' social media channels for updates on new installations!
