Zionsville officials aim to open playground, disc golf course at new park by weekend

Construction is still under way at the new Overley-Worman Park, snuggled between the Vonterra neighborhood and Eagle Creek.

When fully complete, the park – which celebrated its grand opening May 20 — will feature a playground area, fishing pier and boardwalk, mountain bike trails, walking trails, parking and an 18-hole disc golf course. Other features include park overlooks, a natural walking path along nearby Eagle Creek and a 200-foot entrance bridge connected to the Big-4 Rail Trail.

The entrance bridge connects to a spiraling paved path that leads down to the trails and the pond.  

According to Supt. of Parks and Recreation Jarod Logsdon, the park is the first in Zionsville with mountain bike trails and a disc golf course.

Some of the park areas remain closed because of ongoing construction. The space encircling the playground area is unfinished, as is the boardwalk leading up to one of the fishing piers. The park has pond has two fishing piers in total. According to a sign posted on one of the piers, fishing will be catch-and-release only.

The disc golf course, playground area and parking lot are not yet accessible to the public. According to Logsdon, the goal is for the amenities to be up and running by this weekend, weather permitting.

The paved and rustic walking trails, the fishing spots and the mountain bike trails are open.

“We want to offer something for everyone,” Logsdon said. 

Construction on the park started in March of 2021. A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place May 20. Community members, Zionsville officials and Zionsville Mayor Emily Styron attended the official opening of the park. 

Orange fencing and signs inform visitors which areas are off limits.
