5 Things You’ll Love about Flat Fork Creek Park
1. The Treehouses at Flat Fork Creek Park
Flat Fork Creek Park is home to THREE treehouses. One is ADA-accessible, and two others require a little traversing off-trail. But they are the true-to-your-youth, climb-a-ladder treehouse in the middle of the woods.
2. It’s home to the best sledding hill in Fishers
The 60-foot sledding hill is one of the park’s most well-known feature. The hill is the highest point in Hamilton County and has become an epic sledding spot. Every winter, children, and families make their way up the giant hill with sleds and saucers in hand ready for a day of winter fun. In the warmer months, the sledding hill is just as fun to roll or run down when you’re a kid.
3. The Fishing Pond
If you like to fish, the fishing pond is a great place to drop a line. Although, a state fishing license is required for anyone over the age of 17 (ages 17 and under do not need a license).
4. Flat Fork Creek Park has so many ADA-accessible features
The park offers many inclusive amenities to ensure that all visitors can enjoy the wildlife and scenic views, including an ADA-accessible treehouse. The paved multi-use trail and boardwalk that loop around the park are also accessible, and paved ramps lead the way to the top of the sledding hill allowing visitors and residents of all abilities to enjoy one of the best views in Fishers.
5. Many hiking and biking paths to explore
There’s something energizing about a stroll through the woods. If you are looking for a good nature hike, this is an ideal spot for you. There are spots that can be more challenging (hilly) than others, but there’s enough space that you don’t feel like you are walking in circles or crowded by the other visitors.
Bikers will enjoy the 1.25-mile progressive mountain bike course that winds throughout the woods and includes various ramps and technical features for both beginners and advanced bikers.
