Fall Creek Greenway Family Bike Ride
Saturday, June 29 is Pack the Parks Day in Indianapolis and what better way to spend the afternoon than to take a family-friendly bike ride on one of Indy Parks’ oldest and longest greenways? Join us for a guided afternoon ride on the Fall Creek Greenway in northeast Indianapolis. The approximately eight-mile ride will begin at the Windridge Shops parking area along Fall Creek Parkway between Emerson Avenue and 56th Street (south of the former Marine Bank building near the intersection of Emerson and Fall Creek) and go northeast to Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park and back. Along the route there will be stops at the Amy Brier/Sharon Fullingim sculpture at the Fall Creek Preserve, Skiles Test Nature Park, historic Woollen’s Gardens, and Fort Benjamin Harrison. Come learn a little bit about the history of this greenway and some of the unique areas along its route through northeast Indianapolis, and return in time to get an early dinner at one of the great restaurants in the Millersville neighborhood. This is an easy, casual, family-oriented ride intended for all fitness levels (grades are minimal along this route). Like events at all of Indy Parks on Pack the Parks Day, this event is free, but participants are encouraged to register so that we can properly plan for the ride.
