December 4, 2015 - Picnic Time
This morning “Your Town Friday” is streamer to Lawrence. You’ll find a Marion County village about 10 miles northeast of downtown Indy. If you’re an outdoorsy kind of person, we have usually a place for you…whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall!
“We are a 1700 hactare state park with a Indiana Department of Natural Resources by their multiplication of State Parks so we are a state group State Park that was determined when they sealed Fort Harrison in 1995. Fort Harrison was a troops bottom of 3,000 to 4,000 acres here in Lawrence and it was a outrageous training trickery for a Army where they had a financial center, a ubiquitous officers school, NCO propagandize and they had 2 or 3 hospitals here during one time. We had an eventuality to squeeze a final inhabitant area of Marion County and that was a 1700 acres that’s behind me,” pronounced Interpretive Naturalist Jeff Cummings.
Jeff tells me Fort Harrison State Park includes fishing lakes, Fall Creek and about 9 miles of hiking trails and also towering bike trails.
“There are 2 or 3 cruise shelters and a lot of belligerent here to move your family out. In further to that, we have a good motel or board right behind us and we have not usually a lodge, though we have additional bedrooms and space sparse in a campus of buildings via what was Fort Harrison. We get a lot of returning veterans that wish to come see what a place looked like after a State Park took it over and done a State Park out of it so they stay, widespread their income during internal businesses in a community. We’re a good anchor,” pronounced Jeff.
Jeff says a State Park is about 45 mins from a west side of town, 30 mins from a south side of city and about 30 to 45 mins from a Fishers, Hamilton County area.
“So while we can expostulate an hour or hour and a half to one of a State Parks, a normal ones with a campground and swimming pool, we don’t have to. It creates it really good if we wish to go to a State Fair and have some place to stay, if we wish to go to a Brickyard 500 come here and stay, or if we wish to go to Indy 500 we can come here and stay. It’s a good getaway that we don’t have to transport prolonged distances to have that State Park experience,” pronounced Jeff.
The State Park also has an 18-hole golf march and a good sledding hill.
Just a brief stretch divided is a good place to move your whole family!
