Calm and Beautiful Park near Indianapolis

I went here right after Thanksgiving last year and loved it! Very expansive park with a huge lake to hike around! A fantastic place for bird watching, and the nature center was really nice and educational - there were even baby ducks there the day we went! Awesome Family-Friendly park

Very unique and peaceful hiking area. The trails we chose were not difficult at all, and we especially enjoyed walking down on the trail that splits the lake. Didn't see any eagles that day but we still enjoyed our time.


A gorgeous place to hike! I go here all of the time. Smaller simple trails for beginners and longer tough ones for people who like a challenge, they all connect so you can keep going as long as you’d like. It’s very big for a park by a city! Very shady, beautiful forest and beach trail. You can see the animals up close and even go fishing in specific places.


Many different trails and difficulties. I just let my legs decided which way to go 😊 but I have certain physical limitations so I can't do really rugged trails and I had no problems with the intermediate trails here.
