“Great time of year for seeing the lake”

I had 2 hours late in the afternoon to hike the trail along the lake (Ede...). Easily marked, easy terrain. Lots of people jogging or with dogs. With no leaves on trees, easy to spot birds and enjoy the lakeview, but I am sure the shade would also be great.

Eagle Creek Park is a great place to stretch your legs and take in some nature. There are plenty of trails, most of which are great for families with small children and strollers. Go in the fall for some fantastic colors, especially at sunset.

Eagle Creek park is a really great city park. Our largest city park. They have trails, water activities and a Go Ape zip lines/obstacle course. Plenty of places to have a picnic too. There is a daily fee and you can also buy a yearly pass. Lots of cyclist use this park too.

It's a warm sunny Saturday afternoon in October and perfect weather to relax by the Eagle Creek reservoir on the northwest side of Indianapolis.

Eagle Creek Outfitters offers single, double kayaks, canoes, and pontoons.

Prices were better than Lake Monroe and only $30 for a double kayak for 2 hours. They do not have any motorized boats available. The lake is scenic with a bird sanctuary nearby. One can feel the wind and waves. This is towards the end of the ECO season as it closes at the end of October. However, we were pleased to see that they offer moonlight and sunset guided kayak tours with prior reservation.

Definitely a great place to relax with friends, couples, or family. There are bathrooms close to the boat parking and several picnic tables to have lunch.

There is a private air conditioned building that would be ideal for hosting family gatherings, birthday parties, or other medium size events.

I will continue to keep exploring eagle creek park with its many hiking trails. Entrance to the park is only $5 for Marion county residents and $8 per car for non-Marion county residents. The park says the gates close at 7:30pm. Rental boats close at 6pm during Fall Hours and 7pm at other times in the year.
