Fall Fun Activities
Looking for some ways to stay connected to nature this fall? Here are some ideas for outdoor activities that the whole family can enjoy!
Cool Creek Nature Center
Cool Creek Park is one of Hamilton County's most popular parks, as it offers a wide variety of features and activities. Members of the entire family are sure to enjoy this beautiful 90-acre park year round. The park includes 4 miles of wooded trails, perfect for hiking, jogging and bird watching. Scenic paved roads wind through the park are ideal for those who cycle and roller blade.
Check out the playground, softball diamonds, soccer fields, or basketball court. For something slower paced, enjoy our nature trails, wetlands, prairies and benches along the trails, installed by Eagle Scouts.
This park is also home to the Cool Creek Nature Center, where families, school groups and nature lovers can explore the science of Indiana woodlands and learn about the importance of preserving plants and animals in their natural habitats. The center is open Monday thru Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The park and Nature Center provide a variety of programs throughout the year, including programs for children, bird watchers, animal lovers and volunteers.
Cool Creek Park offers 4 shelters for you and your guests to enjoy. The shelter provides grills, picnic tables and trash disposal for convenience
