Soak in the sunshine and fresh air by exploring dozens of local parks and more than 600 miles of trails. The most popular parks include Coxhall Gardens in Carmel, with the twin bell towers chiming on the hour and a children’s play area; Flat Fork Creek Park in Fishers, known for its picturesque boardwalk and three hidden tree houses; and Central Park in Carmel, with a peaceful lagoon area, ideal for fishing and bird watching.

If you’re more of a thrill-seeker, visit Strawtown Koteewi Park in northern Hamilton County, a 750-acre park with miles of trails and prairie land. Book a guided horseback ride through the park at K-Trails Equestrian Adventures, try your hand at a bow and arrow at Koteewi Range or soar through the ziplines and treetop trails at Edge Adventures Koteewi: Aerial Adventure Park.

White River

Take your adventure to the water and paddle along the White River in a kayak or canoe rented from White River Canoe Company. The serene shorelines will make you forget you’re just minutes away from the charming downtown Noblesville Square with restaurants and shops.

Monon Trail

When you visit Hamilton County, bring your bike and pedal along the Monon Trail, a rails-to-trails paved pathway spanning north to Sheridan and south to Carmel, connecting to Indianapolis. Stop along the way to enjoy the scenery or visit a restaurant or store in the Carmel Arts & Design District, Midtown Plaza or Carmel City Center. Click here to access a special Bike the Monon map and see our other trail guides here.
