The kids don’t have to say anything…you just look at the smiles on their faces and hear their contagious laughter as they explore. It’s magical. It’s peaceful. It’s awesome. Next time you visit the park check it out the Nature Play Center. The new "magical" nature play center is open for special events during the winter. We’ve also renovated the water spray feature. Dancing bears and spray misters

Join us at Indian Boundary Park on Saturday, August 14 from 2-3pm for a free dance performance outside on the lawn by Natya Dance Theatre.
🔴 Performed by Natya Dance Theatre's professional company, "Love Transforms" depicts a story from Indian folklore in which the main character must battle the evils in the society and themselves to return to a time of harmony and peace with all of nature and humanity. This story of trials and transformation is told through the use of the Indian art form Bharatanatyam, a dance theatre that involves facial expressions, body movement, percussive footwork, and hand gestures, to express a narrative, intending to create RASA, an aesthetic experience which transforms the audience. #intheparks #NightOutInTheParks

Is the splash pad open? What are the hours? Thanks!
While I did not put the mask on the statue, I did take this picture on 5/27/20 to illustrate the point that everyone needs to wear a mask.
While I did not put the mask on the statue, I took this photo on 5/27/20 to illustrate that everyone needs to wear one. I believe it was gone the next day.
This is my mother Barbara Salisbury McClannen who at the time these photos were taken, lived adjacent to the park with her parents.

Another summer with my kids thriving at camp. Phil Martini is beyond compare for his unique talents bridging theater, comedy, culture, child development, organizational leadership, conflict resolution, and I suspect a certain proficiency with grant writing and budgeting. Patrick Hockberger did an amazing job with the music this year. Indian Boundary under Phil's wing is 40% of why I won't leave the neighborhood. I never expected that when I came here 7 years ago. Thanks Phil, for sharing your magic with us all.
This is a friendly reminder that we should enjoy the baby goslings at a distance and give this young family their space. I’ve seen some people coming too close, making the protective parents feel uneasy. #Canadiangeese

Want to visit...this is marking a boundary where Indian culture was not permitted to pass.
