Fairbanks Art and Nature Park: An Indianapolis Celebration of Mother Earth

 

The Fairbanks Art and Nature Park in Indianapolis consists of 100 acres of natural meadows, woods, wetlands and a large lake, located next to the famous Indianapolis Museum of Art. Followed on one border by the beautiful White River, this wonderful community treasure is being developed to be one of the country’s largest art parks and a center for Indianapolis arts.

Just recently opened in June of 2010, the facility is already a popular tourist destination, and will continue to mature. When all is said and done, the Fairbanks Art and Nature Park will be a premier Indianapolis attraction.
