This park, located at the northern end of Pogues Run Greenway, is a 43 acre park that serves as part of the City’s flood control system. The historic site is designed to help alleviate flooding on the east side of the City. But its design also provides a nearly 2-mile loop trail that provides access to a significant number of contemporary art pieces designed by students from the Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI.
