Arbuckle Acres Park

Tree leaves surround the Arbuckle Acres Park bridge

Arbuckle Acres Park is the oldest park in Brownsburg. The original 38-acre tract was purchased in 1958 from Mattie Tolle who had inherited the property from her father, Alex H. Arbuckle. At Mrs. Tolle's request, the park was named in honor of her father.

Today, the park boasts beautiful mature shade trees on its 52 acres. Amenities include baseball fields, lighted basketball and tennis courts, 1.3 miles of trails with eight-foot-wide asphalt paths, and a playground shielded with a canopy of trees. A large open area is home to several recreational activities, practices and organized events. Three of seven shelters in the park are located next to White Lick Creek.
