>> Eagle Creek Park is a little getaway in Indianapolis. This city park is one of the largest city parks in the country. The large section of forest includes many different trails that wind around every part of the park. My favorite trail is the one that goes around the bird sanctuary and Eagle Creek Reservoir. It is very peaceful in the park. I have been going there since I can remember and still get excited during every visit. It is only $5 per car to get into the park for those who live in Marion county, so all UIndy students can visit for this rate. It is generally flat with a few hills on certain trails, so walking is easy. The park also is home to an ornithology center where sick and hurt birds are rehabilitated in cages visible to the public. It is a great way to learn about the birds and safely get close to nature. The only thing that is bad about the park is that it is almost a half hour drive from campus. But it is always worth the trip and the gas money.
