Keep Indianapolis Beautiful’s IPL Project GreenSpace Recipients Selected for 2019

Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc., (KIB) has launched three new community greenspace projects awarded as part of KIB’s 2019 IPL Project GreenSpace program. The project design process, which began in October, is intended to promote the creation of thriving and inviting public spaces for area residents.

The recipients and their projects are:

The Learning Tree GreenSpace, at 3150 North Clifton Street, is set to transform the I-65-Clifton Street overpass into a community space featuring perennial flowers, shade trees, and community art.

Upon completion, the Capital City Church of Christ’s GreenSpace, at 8925 East 42nd Street, will offer a serenity park and garden for area residents. Murals by local artists and neighborhood children will be created on the building that frames the space.

Gethsemane Lutheran Church GreenSpace, at 6810 East 10th Street, is turning a six-acre area into an inviting space for the community, featuring walking paths, wildflowers and native perennials, and benches.

KIB is a nonprofit organization intended to engage diverse communities to create inviting and inspiring public places. It annually works with more than 15,000 volunteers and nearly 900 community projects.
