See pictures of the storm damage in Seminary Park

Powerful winds that blew through Bloomington on May 25, 2011, forever changed the landscape in and around Seminary Park. Several magnificent trees, among them Bloomington's largest and oldest, were destroyed in the storm. The Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department will remove additional trees in the park that, while left standing, were so damaged that they will not survive.

The Bloomington Parks Foundation is accepting donations to help fund the cost of replacing the trees in Seminary Park, and some 150 additional publicly owned trees that were also destroyed. To make a donation in any amount to the Bloomington Tree Fund, please fill out the Bloomington Tree Fund donation form and send it to the Bloomington Parks Foundation.

Hours: Park is open from 5 a.m. - 11 p.m. daily.

Stone Wall: Featuring historic arch

Bronze Plaques: Depicting Bloomington's history

Parking: Available across College at Seminary Square shopping complex

The City of Bloomington purchased this park from Monroe County Community School Corporation (MCCSC) in 1974 for $1. This park has a unique connection to both Indiana University and MCCSC. This was the original site of Indiana State Seminary in 1820 and became Bloomington High School in 1891, which burned in 1967.
