We Love Noblesville: A Guide to Indianapolis Area Neighborhoods


Another growing city in Indiana and building new communities every year, Noblesville is a great place to call home! City officials are constantly working on ways to make their city more affordable with new housing opportunities. Located in Hamilton County, Noblesville’s population is just over 61,000 and ranks it as the 14th largest city in the state. The parks, outdoor activities, and music venues in Noblesville will keep you active and excited to live here. 

What makes Noblesville family friendly?

Noblesville has so many amazing parks, the beautiful Morse Reservoir, plenty of shopping and restaurants, plus tons of activities your entire family can partake in! The addition of Hamilton Towne Center adds so much to the Noblesville area including an IMAX Theatre, a wide variety of shopping, specialty restaurants, and even an Earth Fare! 

What events or traditions does this city have for the community?

This city is constantly hosting events for the community. A few of the local favorites include a summer concert series, Food Truck Fridays, the annual Fourth of July fireworks, Breakfast with the Mayor, and Santa House.

What makes Noblesville unique?

Noblesville is one of my personal favorite cities around Indianapolis. It is a little further north but that makes it a bit more secluded than some other cities. While the area moving north of Noblesville is still being developed, it also has a very historic, small-town downtown area. Not to mention it also has Morse Reservoir which is a great established lake. Noblesville is more affordable than Carmel or Westfield but still settled and safe. 

What are some of the favorite businesses, stores and local restaurants you would recommend? 

Strawtown Koteewi Park – This 750-acre park includes a natural history center, canoe launch & fishing, plus an archery range & trails.
Forest Park – The beautiful Forest Park is a 150-acre park in Noblesville. The park has tons of amenities including a 9-hole golf course, the Forest Park Inn banquet facility, “Tom Thumb” miniature golf course, skate park, playground equipment, swimming pool, shelters with grills and volleyball sand lots, picnic areas, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, the “Little Beauty” Carousel, the Indiana Transportation Museum and the Logan and Emerson Baseball Fields.
Morse Park and Beach – Morse Park and Beach is the center for summer time activities in Hamilton County. With the surrounding trees, hills, and Morse Lake, it is an ideal location to play! This 23-acre park boasts an 18-hole disc golf course too.
