Fishers Parks & Recreation is relocating its headquarters to the Hub & Spoke community center as it expands offerings beyond traditional activities.

The new headquarters will feature a 15,000-square-foot community makerspace, called Maker Playground, with special attention given to STEM skills.

Fishers Parks says the playground features several zones, including a community workshop, metal shop, 3D printing space, welding, CNC routers, and a laser cutter.

“We are thrilled to relocate our headquarters to create a space that is open for the community to create, tinker, collaborate,” said Fishers Parks director Sarah Sandquist. “We hope this new home along the Nickel Plate Trail will introduce more people to all we offer and expand opportunities for all ages to explore a playground of creativity with the Maker Playground.” 

The city says membership or day passes will be required to access the Fishers Maker Playground with basic memberships starting at $50 per month for residents.

A grand opening ceremony is scheduled for May 22.
