If you don’t want to ice skate outdoors, glide on over to the Carmel Ice Skadium, The Arctic Zone in Westfield or Fuel Tank at Fishers, three classic rinks with public skating available. Individuals of all ages and experience levels can hit the ice. For a twist, check out cosmic skating nights with special lighting and music.
Strawtown Koteewi Park’s winter attraction, Koteewi Run Seasonal Slopes, opens in December (weather permitting). This is central Indiana’s only groomed snow tubing hill. Travel the length of more than two football fields down the hill and ride the tow line back to the top.
Grab your sled and head to Flat Fork Creek Park to enjoy the 60-foot sledding hill. Other local favorites include Simon Moon Park in Westfield and Forest Park in Noblesville.
