Miles and miles of hiking, biking, zip lining, swimming, boating, kayaking, and picnicking opportunities. Annual pass is a great deal or bring a carload of friends in for the day and enjoy this retreat.

We have always enjoyed coming here for hiking and in the summer swimming. It's really nice around the fall with all the colors of the changing leaves.

I'm fortunate enough to live within 5 minutes of the north entrance of the park. My dog loves walking the trails. There are flatter trails if you don't want a lot of physical exertion but also hilly ones including stairs in the woods. Apparently they...More

I enjoy going to this park and just getting lost in the thick green-ness of it all. It's the biggest park in the city, I think. There's boating, though I haven't tried it in a while, and lots of picnic areas. It is a little...More

If you are looking for a 1-2h escape from downtown Indy, this is a good pick. There are several well marked trails and you can see some nice birds.
