Walk the Parks
Spring is the best time to get outside and explore!

For a more active day, hop on one of the swings or slides at Beulah Park in Alexandria or Callaway Park in Elwood. Add a learning experience to your hike at Mounds State Park in Anderson by visiting the pre-historic earthworks built by the Adena-Hopewell people around 160 B.C.
