INDIANAPOLIS — Indy Parks is making progress on a new playspace at Sandorf Park on the southeast side of Indianapolis.

Crews started working on the new playspace in March 2020 after it was selected for the upgrades after the city hosted the National Recreation and Park Association Conference in 2018, according to a press release from Indy Parks.

“Knowing that Sandorf Park means so much to the community and our staff, Indy Parks is excited to bring new life into this space with colorful playground structures, walkways, and benches," Indy Parks Director Linda Broadfoot said in the release. "It’s a joy to see everything come together so beautifully. We are grateful to our partners and donors for helping us reshape Sandorf Park into an energetic playspace for children to explore, admire, and stay active with their family and friends.”

When crews started working on the playspace, crews found industrial sand, according to the release. Indy Parks then closed the park and stopped the work while it worked with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management on the redevelopment plans.

"The remediation plan included the removal and replacement of two feet of soil across the property," the release read.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony could happen later this year and the playspace will officially reopen in 2021, according to the release.
