Beginning Feb. 1, Fishers Parks will be expanding its annual Heart Hike to three parks properties (Nickel Plate District Amphitheater, Heritage Park, and Roy G. Holland Memorial Park) for the entire month. The public will be welcomed to visit each of these locations (all have open restrooms) for a short, scavenger-hunt-style hike to look for heart pictures. These pictures will feature naturally occurring heart shapes in nature – a heart-shaped tree trunk, birds forming into a heart shape, etc. Each location will feature different images, and there will be approximately 20 images at each.
On Saturday, Feb. 13, from 1 to 4 p.m., Fishers Parks will host a community Heart Hike event, inviting people to Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve, 10410 Hague Road, to celebrate Valentine’s Day by taking the Heart Hike, enjoying a free cup of hot cocoa, and warming up by the campfire.
All Heart Hike activities will coincide with American Heart Month, and Fishers Parks will be encouraging residents to get outdoors, engage in some ecotherapy, and explore the parks, all while taking part in some Valentine’s Day fun in a unique way. All hikes will be socially distanced and self-led.
