In fall 2019, Brownsburg Parks will break ground on a new feature on the entry circle to Williams Park (located at 840 S. Locust Lane). At the heart of the space is a serpentine path lined on one side with boulders. Along the path will be various plants that bloom in each season. Near the center of the circle will be a zero-depth water feature. The selected sculpture will be located directly in the center of the pathway. Boulders and benches will provide seating, while shade will be provided by two pavilions. The purpose of this new design is to create a relaxing place to stroll, gather for family photos, participate in bird watching, or just chat with neighbors.
