Ellettsville Amphitheatre Park
Designed to mitigate flooding of Jacks Defeat Creek along East Vine Street in Ellettsville, Indiana, the Ellettsville Amphitheater Park was designed to bring the community together, create connectivity, all while offering a performance venue at its heart.
The master plan for the site is organized around 2.5 acres of contiguous green space that serves as the conceptual heart of the project – forming a linear park creating an elevated berm along Jacks Defeat Creek while linking downtown Ellettsville to neighboring communities east of the river. The ground plane west of the park is lined with pedestrian-scaled programming to activate East Vine Street.
Outward-facing retail, restaurants, and service facilities create a dialogue with the street that line the parks western edge. The porosity of the park encourages commuters, residents, and visitors to travel on foot through the park to explore its activities for all generations. The 300-seat amphitheater at the center of the park provides a multi-purpose performance venue and includes a large expansive green lawn for overflow seating designed to separate the park’s activities from the parking area to the south.
