Flat Fork Creek is one of the newest of the Fishers Parks. If you’ve been following Indy’s Child you already knew that. You read about it back in December here. Even if you didn’t read our last post, you might have at least heard about the amazing sledding hill while snow was still on the ground a few months back. We gave you all the details back then, so you also know that Flat Fork Creek offers an amazing hiking/biking/jogging trail. It’s true!
SPEAKING OF TREEHOUSES: The Conner Prairie Treetop Outpost opens July 1st
But with Indiana’s frigid winters, we really couldn’t do the place justice with picutres back then. So now that the weather has turned, we will not only remind you that it’s complete with 3 treehouses at Flat Fork Creek for exploring, and several obstacle items along the side of the walkway to challenge your balance and agility; we’ll show you.
My suggestion if you’re looking to blow off some energy during the warmer weather is to head out and play Tarzan! Or my personal favorite: capture the flag! (Flags and squirt guns not provided so bring your own!).
If you’re not into tree-based make believe you can head down to the lake for some good ol’ fashion fishing (make sure to pick up your fishing license first!) or rock skipping.
Then head over to the wildflower fields and take home a bouquet to your sweet heart, or in my kids’ case: mommy.
So here are the details you’ll need to know:
Flat Fork Creek Park is located at 16141 E. 101st Street in Fishers. The park is open from dusk to dawn and has great parking and gray bathroom amenities. You can also visit fishers.in.us/PARKS for more information.
In late June 2007, Luis Ruvacalba removed his laundry from the dryer to find that he had rendered all of his undershirts pink and shrunk his favorite red University of Arizona sweater.
At that point – as he says: “I realized: I need a wife. I married Katie in Sept of 2007. Aside from one lousy pen left in my pants pocket and numerous dried on Conner Prairie stickers, the laundry has gone pretty well since then.” Luis has four children: Maggie- 7, Micah- 5, Millie- 2, and Merritt- 1. Each of them helps him sharpen his parenting skills in new and unique ways. “Without Maggie I’d never have learned to put on tights. Without Micah I would have the weakest MMA fighting skills on the block. Millie challenges me to improve my search and rescue abilities. Merritt gives me weekly lessons in Matrix style urine dodging. Together we are the greatest family to ever ruin your family’s nice quiet afternoon at the park.”
Follow along with Luis as he helps shows you the best places to let your family run wild.
