Indianapolis - Fort Harrison State Park

6000 North Post Road

Fort Harrison State Park is a 17,000 acre park featuring more than six miles of walking and jogging trails, designated picnic areas, fishing access, and preservation of the former Citizen's Military Training Camp, Civilian Conservation Corps camp, and a World War II POW camp at the park's headquarters.

Fort Harrison State Park is a state park for many seasons for many reasons. Patrons may enjoy visiting the park all year round, especially in winter since Fort Harrison features the Sledding Hill, one of the biggest in this area. Spring is the season to walk with the woodland wildflowers in full bloom across the park. Summer is the perfect time for a canoe trip down Fall Creek, the major water feature that runs through the north side of Fort Harrison. Autumn brings warm, sunny days and breathtaking fall colors to this, the last forested corner left in Marion County.

I have been going to For Harrison for years. This place has pretty large jogging trails and beautiful views. It is a great choice for family and special occasion photographs. It is also the perfect place for a picnic, dog walking and a nice place for children to play. There is a ton of parking in various parts if the park. There are creeks off some if the trails where many people let their dogs play. If you go often, it is very worth purchasing a yearly park pass, which also does work for the other state parks such as Eagle Creek and others. If I remember correctly, they are around $35-$40 a year.

The Garrisons is a great space with a wonderful view. We were there for brunch with a large group. Our arrival at Noon, however, didn't allow for us to take full advantage of all the delicious looking food served, since they began to shut things down around 2p. So, it's not a place for a quick meal. You should certainly have a few hours to spare to get the most out of what you pay for. Yet, the breakfast was fresh, even at Noon. I had eggs, sausage patties, French toast with a nice maple syrup, home fries and fresh orange juice. After some good conversation, and a little more digestion, I went up for an afternoon nibble. (It's all you can eat, 18.99 for adults, 17.99 for seniors.) If you don't have a large appetite, you may be better served going somewhere else. But, if you have a few hours, and you're with a large group, there will be time to enjoy all the food that is offered. I heard the seasoning didn't sit right with some of the older members of our group, bland/not enough seasoning, while other adults were fine. The desserts were fantastic! (Love a good carrot cake!)

A Great Park to bring your dog. Lots of areas to run around and socialize with other dogs big and small. Never a boring time. my dog is always fully entertained when we come to this park Trash bags and receptacles are provided. There's a fire pit and logs there right now.

A great place to spend some time in nature, conveniently located in Indianapolis. It's our favorite place to "get away" when we don't have time to go any farther. The trails are fairly clear and the scenery is beautiful.

Great mountain biking trails! Best ones are near all the WWll stuff. Two large main playgrounds with little playgrounds scattered around make it great for kids. Trails are beautiful. They do get very muddy in the spring though so watch out
