Natural Beauty for Everyone.
On the northeast side of Indianapolis, much of our land has been developed for residential and commercial use. This 25-acre parcel represented an opportunity to protect a rare, undeveloped, high quality, urban natural area. MCC negotiated 2 years to fundraise for the purchase and preservation of this property in 2019 and successfully acquired the property in April 2021. We believe now is the time to forever preserve remaining natural areas in Indianapolis.
Sargent Road Nature Park is really starting to come to life in 2023. Multiple contracts are now executed, permitting is underway and we expect to see lots of on-site progress early this year. Check this page for up-to-date status reports as we work hard to open SRNP to you all soon.
This property and the greater Mud Creek Valley provide a haven for plant and wildlife diversity and cleaner air and water to a city stressed by urban sprawl.The impressive plant and animal diversity present is a reflection of the natural habitats on which they rely. Protecting their habitat will keep Indy wild for future generations.
Our vision to permanently preserve these special 25 acres is now complete and now the vision for creating a nature park that will provide community wide benefits for generations to come is underway. Sargent Road Nature Park will provide access to low-impact loop trails for outdoor recreation like walking, jogging and bird-watching and maintain the unique natural character of the Mud Creek Valley.
