Explore the Outdoors at These Parks in Westfield

family picnic at a park in Westfield

There are so many things to love about living at Maple Knoll Apartments. One great thing about living outside of the big city is being close to opportunities to enjoy nature. Our apartments in Westfield, IN, are also close to several beautiful parks where you can soak in vitamin D, burn some calories, and make sweet memories. Plus, you can do it all while being socially distanced to keep yourself and others safe. Plan a day to check out these parks in Westfield soon.

Fort Harrison State Park

At Fort Harrison State Park you’ll find walking trails and picnic tables as well as areas where you can fish and canoe. You may also enjoy exploring the grounds of the former Citizen’s Military Training Camp. There is an entry fee of $7 per car per day, and if you love it, you might consider purchasing an annual state park pass. With the annual pass, you can check out the dog park with your favorite four-legged friend.

Eagle Creek Park

It’s also an easy drive to Eagle Creek Park, one of America’s largest city parks. Here, you’ll find almost 4,000 acres of forest and over 1,400 acres of water. Check out opportunities to hike, fish, boat, and bike. You can also go zip lining. There is a fee for entry: $6 per car per day or $1.50 if you ride your bike in.  

Fairbanks Park

The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park is located on the campus of Newfields. Throughout the park, you’ll find works of art to admire. Also, keep your eye out for beautiful birds that are attracted to the lake. Make sure you find “Funky Bones,” the bone-shaped fiberglass benches that were featured in the movie The Fault in Our Stars. It’s a great place to have a picnic lunch, but you also may want to grab pretzels and a cold beverage from the Beer Garden.
