Daubenspeck Community Park
Address: 8900 Ditch Rd
Indianapolis, IN 46260
Notes: The PLACE Daubenspeck Community Nature Park is a rare, green-space haven of approximately 22 acres at 8900 Ditch Road in Indianapolis, Indiana. Year round, you can enjoy a peaceful walk on the grass trail through restored tall native prairie grasses and wildflowers. Educational signs and trail guides at the park kiosk inform you of the many plantings and wildlife at Daubenspeck. The NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION DCNP is not a city park or private park. It is 100% volunteer-run as a non-profit organization. The mission is for “community and nature to enhance each other” through education, enjoyment, habitat, environ- mental benefits, civic opportunities, and more. The organization is led by a board of directors. DCNP Inc. is a charitable non-profit (IRS 501-C-3) funded by individual donations, corporate support, and grants. Donations are tax-deductible. Who owns the land? The open fifteen acres (now the prairie) was a farm field donated for public use by the Daubenspeck family more than 50 years ago. The Metropolitan School District of Washington Township owns it and leases it to DCNP in a unique public/non-profit/community partnership. The 8-acre woods to the north is owned by the neighboring North Willow Farms Homeowners Association, which also leases it to DCNP as a management partnership.
