Cardinal Park

Cardinal Park is Brownsburg’s newest park, with Phase 1 completed in Fall 2018. Phase 1 included installation of stormwater basins (also known as “constructed wetlands”), a parking lot that accommodates 50 vehicles, the extension of Thornburg Parkway to Hornaday Road and the creation of a Recreational Trails Program (RTP) trail that provides access from the B&O Trail north to SR 136 (Main St.).

Phase II construction on this 14-acre site began in fall 2019 with the creation of a 2-acre dog park and a year-round restroom facility.

Phase III is projected to begin in 2021 and will include an inclusive/sensory playground and shelter/pavilion.

Park Rules

Park & Trail Safety

 

  • Trails are Open Dawn to Dusk. Don’t be caught in the dark – carry a flashlight with you.
  • Use the Buddy System. If you choose to be out alone, be sure someone knows where you will be at what times. Children under 11 should not use the trails without adult supervision and teens should always have a buddy.
  • Be Sure Your Cellphone Location Feature is on Location services will make it easier for emergency personnel to find you if there is an accident.
  • Wear Proper Safety Equipment. Be sure you are visible with bright clothing, lights and reflectors. Always wear a helmet when riding a bicycle.
  • Lock Your Parked Car and Keep Valuables Out of Sight.
  • Be Aware Of Your Surroundings
  • No Motorized Vehicles Are Allowed on the Trail. Only motorized wheelchairs, maintenance and rescue
    vehicles are permitted on trails. Report all others to 911.
  • Keep Right and Yield the Right of Way. Stay on the right side of the trail. Skaters, joggers and bicyclists yield to pedestrians; all users yield to horses.
  • Be Aware of Your Speed. The B&O Trail speed limit is 12 mph.
  • Stay On the Trail. Do not disturb the trail’s surrounding vegetation to protect
    the trees, plants and wildflowers.
  • Don’t Litter. Remember: pack in and pack out. Respect the trail environment by properly disposing of items.
  • Keep Pets on Short Leashes. Protect your pet and others by keeping them on a leash. Remember to clean up after your pet.
  • No Horses on Paved Trail Except Where Permitted

Instagram post 17932808470193145 There was a birthday party at the splash pad tonight. Poppy did what Poppy always does when she sees fun, she invaded. I always hold my breath when this happens- sometimes like yesterday at the library the mom was annoyed and shooed her away. (don’t bring snacks to the library then lady 🙄) Tonight was different though. As soon as the adults noticed her they offered her a party hat, cake and even bubble party favors. They included her right into their fun and my Momma heart exploded with gratitude. People are good. 💛
