Welcome to the Overley-Worman Park open house!
The Zionsville Park and Recreation Board is excited to share the progress and plans for the Overley-Worman Park project with you. Prior to COVID-19 the Park Board had planned to host an open house to share details for the upcoming park project. Due to the restrictions needed to keep everyone safe, we will instead host the open house in this virtual format.
How to Use the Virtual Open House
This website is organized around a combination of videos, graphics, text and questions that describe the project background, present the project plan and details, and discusses the planned schedule for project construction. We thank you in advance for your participation and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
The overall experience is expected to take approximately 20-25 minutes. If at any point you experience technical difficulties or would prefer a paper copy of the material, you can use this comment form to request assistance or to have a paper copy available at the Planning Department located in Town Hall, 1100 West Oak Street.
Text and images will be used throughout the virtual open house. Simply click on a video to begin playing. Closed captions can be turned on or off with the “CC” button in the bottom right corner.
At the end of each section you will see “Previous” and “Next” buttons to go forward or backward in the open house. At the end of the last section you will see a “Submit” button to complete the open house and have your answers and comments recorded.
In spring of 2017 the Park and Recreation Board completed the master plan process to guide the future development of Overley-Worman Park.
Park Layout and Details
Overley-Worman Park will be a Town asset with both active and passive recreational activities. The park will compliment the existing parks system by providing more options for high-demand activities like playgrounds and pathways while also creating new amenities like mountain bike trails and a disc golf course.

Every construction project progresses differently depending on the land, park design, funding, and coordination with other nearby projects. In general, construction projects follow the same basic process, although sometimes sequencing of the construction occurs differently. The basic phases of construction include:
- Site Demolition & Clearing
- Earth Moving & Grading
- Construction of Infrastructure and Park Features
- Final Grading and Finishing
There are many questions regarding the timing for construction of Overley-Worman Park. The Town is currently working with the design consultant to prepare bid documents and will have the project ready for contractors to bid by this fall.
Once construction is finished, inspected, and approved the park will be ready for the public to enjoy. The park is planned to be complete by late 2021 to early 2022.
Are there specific questions that you have regarding construction of the park?
