About

Please join us in trying to identify items in this collection. We are asking for help identifying parks photographs that had little or no identifying information attached to them. While the city parks system of Indianapolis was officially formed with the Board of Parks Commission under Mayor Thomas Taggart in 1895, the story of parks in Indianapolis began decades before. The Indy Parks and Recreation digital collection features over 17,000 images and documents that depict this long history. To view the collection in full please visit: https://www.digitalindy.org/digital/custom/ipr
