Forest Hills is home to the oldest continuous neighborhood event in Indianapolis, it's Halloween Party. It's annual Summer Picnic dates back nearly as far. Other neighborhood events include an all neighborhood Garage Sale in May, Luminaries lining our streets on Christmas Eve, and All-Neighborhood Meeting in June, and more recently, a neighborhood Garden Tour and a Progressive Dinner.
The neighborhood successfully won approval for a stoplight at the intersection of 57th Street and College Avenue, allowing our children to walk to neighboring schools IPS Center for Inquiry and Immaculate Heart of Mary. All intersections within the neighborhood now have four way stops and we have a direct access to the Monon Trail, shared with the Northview neighborhood to our south.
Forest Hills has only one business within it's borders, currently the Broad Ripple Animal Clinic Wellness Center, but over the decades the building has housed a number of different enterprises. We are within easy walking distance of Broad Ripple Village, the Shops of 54th Street, and numerous businesses along College Avenue at various nodes that sprang up along the old electric interurban line.
People who've shaped recent history
Forest Hills has been home to Mayors, business leaders, and members of the media over the years. The Neighborhood Association was formed as the area was subdivided, and over the years, countless neighbors have served, and continue to serve on the Board and as Association Officers. If there is a single thing that's unique about Forest Hills, it's the continuing collaborative effort of its residents to create a neighborhood where everybody knows your name.
