INDIANAPOLIS – The ruins at Holliday Park reopened Saturday afternoon after nearly 20 years.

The ruins got a major facelift and now feature a children’s water table, benches, trees and new gardens.

An Indy-based group called, Friends of Holliday Park, raised $3.2 million for renovations.

“Holliday Park has always been an important park on the north side of Indianapolis,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett. “The fact that the Friends of Holliday Park have come together over five years and help raise $3.2 million, we will continue to make Holliday Park a premier destination for not only residents of the north side but throughout Indianapolis.”

Holliday Park originally opened in 1916.
