Coxhall Gardens is a unique and fascinating park, waiting to be discovered. This modern, 125-acre park includes the elegant Centerpiece, twin 90-feet bell towers, a recreation lake, and Children’s Garden, which features “village stores,” echo walls, peek-a-boo hills, sun dial, and Tiki huts. Campbell Crossing, which is connected to the Centerpiece and surrounded by water on two sides, serves as a serene location for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. The land for this stunning park was graciously donated by Jesse and Beulah Cox in 1999 and is enjoyed by visitors of all ages. As the park continues to grow it will eventually include a conservatory, museum, reflecting pool and numerous specialty gardens.

For those wanting to enjoy the beauty of Coxhall Gardens in a more active way, the park also offers programs and events, including Family Frog Night, Autism Walk, and Concerts in the Centerpiece. Visit our Programs page and our Events page to find out more.

The dramatic Centerpiece, which features a statue of Jesse and Beulah Cox, gazebo, fountains, and tiered lawn seating, is now available for rental. In 2005, the facility served as the location of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Solheim Cup, and is the ideal setting for weddings, reunions and other special gatherings. Visit our Facilities for Rent page for additional information on this beautiful facility and how you can make reservations for your next occasion.

  • Wow, I just had a private tour of the mansion. If you are a 70s or 80s affectionate like I am it will please on every level. Curtain magnet Mr Coxhall left a legacy for the residence of Indiana.

  • I love Coxhall Gardens for many reasons. The location is super convenient in Carmel and usually pretty less crowded due to the sheer size and landscape at the location. It’s always beautiful to see engagement and wedding shoots and family picnics at the same time. The gardens has a beautiful amphitheater, a kids park which is so vibrant and colorful with benches, swings and spaces to play.
  • This park is such a hidden gem. It's a little away from the city, but so worth the drive. My Fiancée and I had our engagement photos taken here, and there are so many different environments- greenery, cool structures, bridges, a pond/creek. Its also a great place to relax! Very clean, wasn't too crowded, and so much space
