Irvington Neighborhood Biking Tour

South Irvington Circle Park

Indianapolis, Indiana 46219, United States

Created By: Historic Urban Neighborhoods of Indianapolis


The winding streets and the Circle are examples of the progressive ideas that were built into the Irvington plan when the neighborhood was founded. The circle is one of three in the neighborhood, and has been a part of the neighborhood since the 1870s.

Irvington was named after the American writer, Washington Irving. Many of its streets and roads were also named after notable figures in American history and literature: Hawthorne, Emerson, Audubon. A limestone bust of Irving was placed in the park in 1936, but was eventually moved to the grounds of School #57 on East Washington Street. The current bust was forged by factory workers at the International Harvester plant on Brookville Road here in Irvington in 1971.
