At the northeast corner of the Indian Mound neighborhood where Gladstone Boulevard meets Belmont Avenue, one will find the geographical and historical Indian mound that overlooks the neighborhood. The neighborhood also boasts three elementary schools, Northeast Middle School and Northeast High School, along with the expansive Budd Park and the east entrance to Cliff Drive.

The Indian Mound Neighborhood Association (IMNA) has been active in overseeing improvements to both parks by applying for Public Improvement Advisory Committee (PIAC) funds that repair the stone walls by the Indian Mound and new sidewalks and shelter houses in Budd Park. Traffic calming measures along St. John Avenue were spearheaded by resident input and funded through PIAC request, with installation beginning this summer.

The  signature event for IMNA is their annual October pumpkin patch event where each child that attends gets a free pumpkin, candy, and offers fun activities for the whole family.

Indian Mound resident Christopher Lowrance and KC Park Ambassadors gather volunteers every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. to collect trash around the Indian Mound park area and also report large items that are dumped to the City for bulky collection.

Beginning in May, dumpsters will be available for those who want to collect trash and clean up their blocks. The dumpsters will be placed in the Indian Mound Park parking lot and available on the first Saturday of every month from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. through September. No tires, yard waste, or appliances will be allowed, and once the dumpsters are filled, they will be removed until the following month. 

The Indian Mound neighborhood is bounded on the north by Gladstone Boulevard, the east at Belmont Avenue, south at Independence Avenue, and west at Jackson Avenue. Association meetings are held the third Monday of each month beginning at 6:30 pm at the North-East Branch Library, 6000 Wilson Rd., and via Zoom.
