Virgil Park

Virgil Park is a 6.7-acre parcel of land located in the southeast portion of Brownsburg just off of C.R. 300 N This property will be developed to provide additional parking for B&O Trail users. The concept includes amenities such as a small playground, shelter, and restroom facility.

The majority of the property will feature natural elements that maintain the integrity of the wetlands already on site. Wetlands, consisting of prairie grasses and flowers, will serve the property by helping with stormwater control as well as creating a habitat for certain plants and animal species.

Current Stage: Construction

Virgil Park design has been completed and construction is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2023. 

The project has received a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and National Park Service for $367,932. In addition to its connection to the popular B&O Trail and the planned trailhead amenities and play features, the new park will serve an essential ecological function for the community. The park will protect existing wetlands on the property that serves as an important resource for water quality and habitat for native species, including waterfowl. The 6.7 acres will also promote prairie and woodland growth and habitat for critical pollinators.
