Both stunning and serene, Buxton Park is nestled in the center of Indianola adjacent to Simpson College. Its formal gardens, ornamental fountain and gazebo offer a spectacular setting for intimate gatherings, photo sessions or a simple stroll in the park. Also home to an arboretum, the park offers a self-guided interpretive tree tour pamphlet at the display case near the gazebo.
The first park in our system was donated to the City in 1906 by William and Elizabeth Buxton.
