Hey you!  Yeah, you!  Why don't you take a day and enjoy one of America’s largest urban parks, Eagle Creek Park, in northwestern Marion County.  You can literally get lost, with more than 3,900 acres of woodland terrain and meadowlands.  Put some walking shoes on and hike the park's many trails, a welcome respite for hikers, birders and bikers.  Plus, the 1,400-acre lake welcomes fishermen and sailors. 

Not enough for you?  Need more reasons?  Add this to your ro-do list.  There are numerous picnic areas, a swimming beach and miles of scenic bike riding opportunities throughout its lovely expanse. Got water on the brain?  Rent a canoes, kayak, sail and pontoon boat or pedal boat.

This is your chance to be one of the more than half-million visitors to Eagle Creek Park each year and is the largest of Indianapolis’ city parks.  What can you do at Eagle Creek?  What can’t you do?

J.K. Lilly, of the Eli Lilly & Company family, donated the current Eagle Creek Park to Purdue University in the late 1950s. Later, it was sold to the city of Indianapolis.  In 1967, to help control flooding, they built the earthen dam and creates the 1,400-acre Eagle Creek Reservoir where you can sail and windsurf.  Inside the park, we dare you not to want to hike, bike, bird watch or bump into a deer or two.  At Eagle Creek Park, you’re only minutes from downtown of the twelfth largest city in America, but gosh, you're miles away from everything.
