The park is very convenient to get to. Just off 465 on the east side. There are hiking and biking trails for people of any age group. A lot of open spaces to play games and have picnics. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

This is a great park located right in the city. There are lots of different trails and bike paths. Some paved and some natural terrain. Duck ponds and playgrounds for the younger visitors. There is an EXCELLENT sledding hill in the winter.

One of our absolute favorite places in Indy. 15 minutes from our home and only $50.00 for a year long pass that includes every state park in Indiana. Super busy day because of the weather but there are enough trails that they aren't crowded because...More

Very expansive grounds. When used for an event it is most accommodating. Other times it is just a place for hiking.
