Eagle Creek Park consists of 3,900 acres of woods, meadows and ponds, and 1,300 acres of reservoir — a great resource for both wildlife and recreation.
Eagle Creek Park is one of the nation’s top 10 largest municipal parks, but Indianapolis’ only park that is mandated to be self-sufficient.
Over one million people visit Eagle Creek Park every year.
The city of Indianapolis provides only $24 per resident for parks and recreation. Yet, the median amount spent per resident in 100 of our country’s most populous cities is $89!
