Now this park offers it all. 9 hold golfing, restaurant, sailboats, pontoons, walks with nature, walks against nature (lololol), hiking, biking, laying, or sitting to recuperate. I will be making much more use of it. I think there are even tennis and basketball courts somewhere. I will find them. Please bring your friends, families, pets, kids, enemies, barbeque equipment, exercise... More

this is the largest park in the city, maybe the state. Running or biking on trails or off road, small swimming beach, lots of picnic shelters, rent kayaks, nature center or just wander thru the woods on a trail. Easy to get to and very relaxing for an hour or the whole day, by yourself or a large family reunion.... More

We stumbled on this park on our way to our hotel. Went back several times. We were there on a windy week. Bike and kayak, canoe and paddle boats available.

Beautiful Park! We were there for the Women's Big Ten rowing championships and noticed there are many walking & biking trails. The lake looked dirty so I don't know that you can swim there but I understand the canoeing and kayaking are fun.

Eagle Creek is a beautiful city park, on par with state parks. Fantastic for quick hikes, strolling along the reservoir with your dogs, or family outings.

it's true! look it up! There's no better place that is a quick, easy drive away that offers up wild life in their natural state. zip-lining. water-sports. botanical gardens. etc. the list goes on. an absolute must visit for all hoosiers and people across the midwest, not just for residents of Indianapolis

There are NOT lots of deer and those that are in the park will likely be shot during their annual tame deer slaughter. Hiking trails have deteriorated so much that they can be dangerous when covered with leaves or snow. Eagle Creek Park is a great place for bird watching, having a picnic or water activities. It is most enjoyable... More

Not very far from the downtown Indianapolis, this is one of the must-visit places in Indianapolis, especially during summers and fall. Great place to hangout - many lakes and reservoirs. There is Go Ape Adventures within the park which is open from April to October. The Eagle Creek Earth Discovery Center, right next to Go Ape, is quite a good... More
