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.

Met the Indianapolis Hiking Club in Eagle Creek Park for a 6 mile hike. It was a beautiful morning and an amazing city park!! Wish there were more 3 day weekends so I could do this more often.

I cannot recommend enough this remarkable city park. Bird sanctuary, an 18-hole golf course, outstanding swimming area, hiking trails and more. It is beautiful and clean and just a wonderful place to spend a day or more. Fantastic!
