Springtime is a great season at the park. Park patrons may also enjoy the park all year around including the winter season at Fort Harrison State Park the sledding hill is one of the biggest in this area, enjoy cross-county skiing on one of park's scenic, nature trails. To break the "ice" of sitting around home in the winter, ice fishing on the park's lake is also a great winter activity.
Landscape and history blend in a unique setting in northeast Indianapolis at Fort Harrison State Park. The 1700-acre park features walking and jogging trails, picnic sites, fishing access to Fall Creek and two national historic districts. The former Citizen's Military Training Camp, Civilian Conservation Corps camp, and World War II prisoner of war camp is preserved at the park headquarters location.
Visitors may enjoy a stop at the park's interpretive center to view exhibits and ask questions of park naturalists. Springtime is a great season to enjoy woodland wildflowers, to watch for warblers flying north for breeding season or listen for elusive resident pileated woodpeckers.
