Arch Street ParkLocated in the 200 block of Arch Street. The newly enhanced and renovated park provides children with fun and relaxation for everyone.. A new basketball court, swings, bathrooms and a large play set. The park is fenced with the original fence from the old park to give it a feeling of history and to make sure the kids are safe.

Westfield

Freedom Trail Park–500 Deer Walk Trace (also known as 181st Street) Freedom Trail Park’s new inclusive playground has a 2-5 year old area as well as an older children’s area.  There is also a sensory garden.   The Westfield Rotary Club partnered with the City of Westfield Parks Department to design, build, and fund the Sensory Garden features. During the design, the Hamilton County Autism Support Group (HCASG) conferred with them to make sure the features that are included are ones which children with autism would prefer, for example, spinning and twirl features. The equipment was built so more than one individual in a wheelchair can pass on the wide ramp system leading to all the play features. The swings include handicap accessible swings instead of platform swings.
