This park is great because there is truly something special to do here year round.

Fishers Agripark is the newest addition to the Fishers parks, and is a must do for your family. Farming and playtime have collided in this unique space, where you will find a real working farm, in addition to a small trail, mud kitchen, and Montessori style playground equipment.

The Bee Camp Creek Trailhead has playground ideal for kids ages 5-12, but little kids will still have a great time with a little help! The playground is intimate and is often not very crowded. While there are benches, the playground is not shaded so be sure to bring water and sunscreen on hot days. There are also no restrooms or water fountains here.

Locals might know this pocket playground as “Big Wheel Park,” called that for wheel-shaped track surrounding this park. This playground is perfect for the smaller kids. There is not a lot of equipment, but what is there is smart! Scan the QR codes to get a classic story read right on your smartphone. Heritage Meadows Park is also very close to Cheeney Creek Natural Area, a wildlife reserve in the heart of Fishers.
14181 E 126th Street, Fishers
Olio Fields is adjacent to Hamilton Southeastern High School and is also known as a sports complex in Fishers. While softball and baseball are the focus of this park, the playground is still awesome. The playground has a multi-tiered structure for all age and skill levels, but my kids love the twisty slide. There is plenty of benches to watch the kids play, or just look at the beautifully maintained ornamental grasses and landscaping. Amazing! If you forget snacks, the playground is close to the concession building, which also include restrooms.
No matter the season or the reason, Fishers playgrounds and have parks have so much to offer. Spend a few hours or a whole day and use #PLAYIndy on social media so we can follow along!
