Get out #AroundFishers with these 5 Cool Places for Summer! Fishers has so many opportunities for fun on hot days. With activities available for the whole family, grab some sunscreen and seize your summer!

Creek Stomping – Flat Fork Creek Park

One great educational activity for kids of all ages is “creek stomping” which is exactly what it sounds like! Kids of all ages can wander through Flat Fork Creek, free to splash and stomp through the water. There are so many opportunities for discovery – including plants, creatures or stones. If going creek stomping, make sure to bring your water shoes and a taste for adventure. For a map of the park, be sure to check
