A Look at Brownsburg Park Board Achievements

Here’s a brief look at the achievements made thanks to the hard work of Park Board members over the years. Click on the arrows to learn more about their achievements through the years.

1959

The Town of Brownsburg officially created the Park Board. Just a year before, the Town entered into a lease with the family of Alex H. Arbuckle to create the Town’s first park, Arbuckle Acres.

1997

The Park Board acquired the Williams Park property, and the following year received ownership of Stephens Park from Lincoln Township.

1999

The Park Board hired the Town’s first Park Director and charged him with creating recreation and fitness programs to increase the health and well-being of residents.

2005

The Veterans Memorial Garden, located just to the north of the Williams Park entrance, was dedicated. Created by a committee made up of community members, the garden features four inscribed brick walkways that lead to a circular path that surrounds a black granite monument. The monument bears the names and dates of military actions that our country has been a part of. As you stroll the circular walkway you can read storyboards that describe seven major wars in American history, from The Revolutionary War to Vietnam.

2007

The Cardinal Park Property was acquired in a land swap with the Brownsburg Community School Corporation. The 15-acre property is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed by 2021.

2010

The B&O Trail Association, Brownsburg Parks and the Town of Brownsburg entered into an agreement to develop the first section of the B&O Trail from Green Street east to Co. Rd. 300 N.

2013

Brownsburg Parks acquired the property at CR 300 N and CR 900 E. In 2019, the property was named Virgil Park, in honor of Hall and Diana Virgil, who dedicated years to ensuring the creation of the B&O Trail, which abuts the property.

2014

Brownsburg Parks acquired the West Wynne Property off Northfield Drive.

2015

A second agreement among The B&O Trail Association, Brownsburg Parks and the Town of Brownsburg was entered into that expanded the trail east from Co. Rd. 300 N to the Ronald Reagan Parkway.

Brownsburg Parks acquired a little over 9 acres through a donation to the park system. This land will be used in the development of the White Lick Creek Greenway, preserving natural resources and allowing for the trail to continue south to Arbuckle Acres Park.
