Unidentified park aerials, 1960s

Park Name: (Select Park Name)

Comments: : Corner of Bluff Rd and Hanna Ave, south side, Indianapolis. Bluff Park sits where the school was - current parking lot is approximate location of the school. The apartment building catty-corner from the school still stands. Ball diamonds at Bluff Park were the school ball diamonds, and have been there in some capacity since 1941 aerial photo.

Additional Information: School appears on the 1966 aerial with the baseball diamonds in the same location of this photo. 1972 aerial photo shows baseball diamonds at present location in Bluff Park. School had been demolished by 1986 aerial photo - parking lot and row of trees behind the school remained. Appears to be an active school (cars in the parking lot) in 1979 photo.

Comments: : Not a park, but the site of the present day Rise Learning Center. "V" shaped building on the left is the James Whitcomb Riley Alternative School. Identified the area by recognizing the I-465 interchange with US 31 in the distance. Madison is in the foreground. The ball fields appear to be associated with the two schools.

Additional Information: Brick structure in the bottom left corner is the now demolished Edgewood School (1915 Sanborn)
