Garden · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
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.

  • This park is lovely to drive through, stop & park & walk a bit. If the weather were cooler, I could spend a couple of hours here walking the pathways. The entrances greet you with bell towers. In.....  more »
  • Beautiful place to visit. If you enjoy taking photos there are a lot of photo ops here. We went in the fall and it was perfect. Would love to see it in the spring with everything in bloom.  more »
  • Lovely setting. Spent an evening here with friends listening to a great band on a warm summer's evening as the sun was setting. Friendly family atmosphere. Much enjoyed.
  • I love this park. It's an expansive, grassy park that the City of Carmel has put alot of money into making look pretty. Take a date here for a dope picnic or simply come here for a relaxing stroll. I'm sure it would also make for a sweet wedding venue. There are fountains, a creek, lot of walkways, and a cool little village for children's play.
