HCCF Grant Supports Williams Park Circle Renovation

Williams Park Circle Redesign Nets $9,000 Hendricks County Community Foundation Grant

Brownsburg Parks recently learned it is the recipient of a $9,000 Community Project Grant from the Hendricks County Community Foundation. The grant will fund the addition of shade trees and native plantings to the redesigned Williams Park entry circle. Construction bids are due to go out by the end of the year so work on the circle can begin in the spring.

The grant will help Brownsburg Parks offset the cost of the renovation with non-tax dollars. The department continues to seek grants and sponsorships to reduce the cost of the project, which will cost approximately $80,000.

“Williams Park welcomes thousands of visitors annually,” said Park Director Travis Tranbarger. “This grant will provide beautiful natural elements to what we believe will be a stunning new feature at the park entrance.”

The goal of the entry circle design is to create a destination feature that draws visitors of all ages in for a closer look. The hope is for guests to find the space a relaxing place to stroll along the serpentine path, rest on boulders lining the path to chat with friends, or engage in quiet reflection by a zero-depth water feature such as a boulder fountain.

The design was created by an advisory committee made up of residents and staff.
