Parks Summer Programs and Leagues

The Parks Department's Summer Brochure is out!


It’s Summer in New Albany, and our parks department has some wonderful programs and facilities ready to keep you and your family active and healthy throughout the warm months ahead.

Wanting to cool off? The splash pads at Silver Street Park are a great place to spend an afternoon. If you’re looking for an entire day full of fun, be sure to check out River Run Family Waterpark when it opens on May 28th. Last year, we welcomed over 30,000 visitors to River Run, and we are eager to break that number this year.

We also have some great events ready for this Summer. Love music? The Boomtown Ball and Festival is scheduled for Sunday May 29th in downtown New Albany. Our Bicentennial Park Summer Concert Series will also return in June to downtown. And don’t forget to come see the fireworks at our Riverfront Independence Day Celebration on July 3rd at the Riverfront Amphitheater! 

Looking for a new program or class to take? This brochure is packed with activities for all ages.
We are sure if you take a few moments to browse it, you will find something new to enjoy this summer!
