Kelly Park officially opens after renovations!!

The newly renovated Kelly Park is now open for all to enjoy. This renovation is one part of the Lift Indy Grant investment into the Old Southside/Stadium Village area. The Stadium Village Business Association provided the seed money to invest in the application process that ultimately led to our area securing the Lift Indy Grant. SVBA members can be proud to see our membership dollars used to help transform our area and make a positive impact on the community.

About Lift Indy

Each year, the City of Indianapolis designates a new Lift Indy area through a data-driven and competitive process. The selected area will receive a significant portion of two U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants – the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

Lift Indy comes as part of Mayor Hogsett’s commitment to transforming Indianapolis neighborhoods. This strategic investment of public funds aims to support the growth of economic development opportunities, the preservation and development of quality affordable housing, creative placemaking, availability of social services, infrastructure, public amenities, social engagement, and other aspects of quality of life that make up a complete neighborhood. The funds will be targeted in areas where public investments could help realize market potential.
