We have visited Strawtown Park a few times this year, it is a beautifully well kept park with neat paths. There is no shortage of birds and animals and it is a great place to go to get back to nature or to take a short walk along the river.
A very popular park for horse lovers with long trails for those that need to kick back and enjoy a long ride!
Just one thing to remember bring bug spray as the mosquitos are particularly bad at certain times.
From the Hamilton County Strawtown Park Page:
Strawtown Koteewi Park is a must-see for any history buff. The park has become a hot-bed of archaeological activity in recent years, with students from Ball State University, IPFW, Indiana University and Indiana State University contributing their time to the collection and curation of artifacts found in the park. Researchers have discovered that the major occupancy of this property dates back to 1200-1400 A.D. Artifacts found include arrowheads, pottery and remains of what the occupants may have eaten, including bear and elk. Researchers have also discovered evidence of postholes, storage pits and fire pits that show the location of early villages and huts on the property.
If history doesn’t strike your fancy, this 750-acre park also includes a canoe launch on the White River for boating and fishing, nature trails for hiking or cycling, equestrian trails for riding, and wetlands and prairies for enjoying the park's natural beauty.
