Brookside Park is a 108 acres (0.44 km2) municipal park in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States. It is located at 3500 Brookside Parkway S. Drive on the near-eastside of Indianapolis, just north of the Rural-Sherman neighborhood. The park straddles Pogue's Run, a tributary of the White River.[1]

Brookside Park feature a public swimming pool, a 20,000-square-foot (1,900 m2) community center, outdoor shelters (able to be reserved through Indy Parks), baseball fields, soccer fields, a disc golf course, basketball courts and several nature trails.[2] The park is in an urban setting near mixed neighborhoods, with older homes dating from the 1890s and early 20th century bungalows. Historic home restoration has begun, and new affordable housing has been completed in the first decade of the 21st century.
