Get everyone out of your Indianapolis house and into the fresh air at Eagle Creek Park. There are 3900 acres of forest and 1400 acres of water, so there’s always something to do. There are two sections of trails, each about two miles, perfect for a walk or a run. The Earth Discovery Center is the place to go to learn about all the animals and plants you see out on the trail. See native reptiles, amphibians, fish, and insects up close. Seasonal displays help visitors identify the plants and creatures they’re likely to see. On Saturdays and Sundays, families are invited to come for a nature program at 1:30 p.m. The topic varies, but can include a guided hike or a more information about one of the animals on display.
