First settled in the 1870s as two small independent towns, Martindale and Brightwood share a history of change. Combined to form a single Indianapolis
sits in the northeast quadrant of greater Indy just four miles from the downtown core. You can find houses
and apartments for rent at scattered locations throughout this tree-covered neighborhood.
This district takes a proactive approach to community betterment. Local volunteers and neighborhood associations join forces with the Martindale-Brightwood Community Development Corporation to beautify the neighborhood and improve life for its residents.
Follow the locals for grab-and-go eats from one of the neighborhood's hidden gems. It doesn't get more out-of-the-way and one-of-a-kind than Jamaican Style Jerk. This little hole-in-the-wall serves up barbecue pork ribs and chicken curry patties that make your taste buds sing. To burn off those calories, hit the links with friends at Douglass Golf Course, or try out a different kind of fun at the Washington Park Disc Golf Course.
