Tague Property

The Town of Brownsburg purchased this 51-acre property from the Tague family in June 2018. Located just west of the intersection of Green and Main Street, the expansive acreage has the potential for many community amenities.

This page will be updated throughout the year as the community helps to create the overall site master plan for the next community park in Brownsburg.

Current Stage: Planning

During the Planning Stage, staff will work with consultants and community members to identify park amenities. Priorities for amenities will be based on Brownsburg Parks’ Strategic Master Plan, which was created using survey data provided by residents. Based on the Master Plan, the park is expected to include:

  • Open space for a variety of field sports
  • Trails, including a connection to the White Lick Creek Greenway
  • A potential indoor/outdoor aquatic center
