Developers recently announced plans for a new jump park to be constructed within the Dartown Crossing Project west of U.S. 31 on Ind. 32.
The name of the jump park hasn’t been announced yet as details are still under discussion. It will move into the same development as Laser Flash of Carmel, as Laser Flash Owner Peter Murphy announced plans earlier this year to move its operations from Carmel to Westfield. The jump park will add a multi-level, 40,000-square-foot recreation center to the development.
Construction for both the jump park and Laser Flash will begin next spring, with a projected open date of late next year.
Jump park owner Tom Holsworth said he hopes to make Westfield’s jump park the largest in the area. The park will be equipped with trampolines and rock-climbing walls.
“It will have a ninja course, rock climbing walls, it will have several trampoline areas, tons of activities,” he said. “It will be the largest one that I’m aware of in Indiana.”
Holsworth said the main pull for the project was the number of families visiting Grand Park.
“Grand Park is obviously a tremendous pull right now. (Ind.) 32 is having a huge explosion right now with development, so our big pull is to attract people from the surrounding areas,” he said. “Our main focus is growing Westfield and to develop out near Grand Park and take advantage of the opportunity.”
EdgeRock Development Managing Director Birch Dalton said the Jump Park and Laser Flash will serve as anchors for the 40-acre multi-use project. In addition to the Jump Park, Dalton said the development is receiving interest from restaurants, and he said he expects to have a hotel signed to the site before the end of the year.
