The Millersville neighbors worked for nearly three years to eradicate invasive bush honeysuckle from this public space. With the help of KIB’s Project GreenSpace grant, honeysuckle was removed down to Fall Creek to expand the community space and offer views of this amazing waterway. Millersville residents wish to keep the space as natural as possible, and installed elements like benches and public art to enhance the interaction with the place. This project was done in partnership with the Arts Council of Indianapolis and artist team, Amy Brier and Sharon Fullingim, were hired to create a piece reflective of the neighborhood’s heritage and natural experience. Learn more about the place at the neighborhood’s website.

A partnership between Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, the Millersville at Fall Creek Valley Neighborhood Association, Indy Greenways and the City of Indianapolis Office of Sustainability dramatically enhanced a section of the Fall Creek Trail which the neighborhood adopted and improved over the last several years. Millersville residents created a community space along the Fall Creek Trail where residents and visitors can relax and enjoy a natural setting in the heart of Indianapolis.
