The Esplanade is located in the Historic Meridian Park Historic District (HMP) which is one of several smaller areas within the greater Mapleton Fall Creek neighborhood encompassing the area between Fall Creek, 38th Street, and Meridian Street. HMP boundaries are from 30th to 34th streets and Pennsylvania St to Washington Boulevard.
Great progress has been made over the last 30 years in returning HMP to it’s former glory as a great place to call home and raise a family. As we all say, folks come for the houses but stay for the people and friends. The HMP Neighborhood Association and Mapleton-Fall Creek Development Corporation have worked diligently to market and restore homes in the area.
The Children’s Museum, Ivy Tech Community College campus, Trinity and St. Richard’s school are just a few of the strong, long-term neighborhood supporters.
