Celebration & Dedication of the Holliday Park Ruins

On September 17th, Mayor Joe Hogsett, the Friends of Holliday Park and Indy Parks unveiled the restored structure, which originally opened in 1978 and has been off limits to the public for almost 20 years. The Ruins, the spectacular stone structure located in the park, have undergone a major facelift. Now restored, the Ruins area features a children’s water table, shimmer fountain, benches, an allée of trees and new gardens. In 2010, the Friends of Holliday Park launched a capital campaign to raise funds to renovate the exhibit hall in the nature center and revitalize and endow the Ruins.
