Town council discusses Heritage Trail Park

Zionsville — Heritage Trail Park is one step closer to being constructed.

The Zionsville Town Council will consider Monday, April 8, spending an additional $628,000 to develop the park at the intersection of county roads 400 South and 875 East. A grant from the Land and Water Conservation Fund will refund $200,000 of the $628,000.

Matt Dickey, superintendent of the Parks and Recreation Department, gave a brief presentation during the council’s agenda-setting meeting Monday morning, March 25.

“With this project, we will be able to expand the Rail Trail, develop a trail head and put in play equipment for children ages 2 through 5,” Dickey said. “It will also help address some drainage issues on 875 East.”

Dickey said the money is available in the parks’ nonreverting capital fund, but an additional appropriation is needed because it must be transferred to the park improvements line item.

Dickey said one feature of the park that was heavily discussed was a dog park.

“In the original application, the central area was a dog park,” he said. “After having several meetings, we had many people that were against a dog park than for one; so, the board went ahead and pulled it. It could be added later if there is support for it.”
