Watch the Indianapolis Colts for Free

Perfect for the football lovers in your family! The Colts train at a sports complex in Westfield, Indiana and it’s free to watch them practice AND get an autograph!


Play in the Trees at Edge Adventures

If an adrenaline rush is more your style, come climb the trees and fly on the ziplines in Koteewi Park. Best for older kids and adults without physical limitations.


Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride

Ever wanted to fly over your community in a hot air balloon? That’s totally an option with Midwest Balloon Rides! During the experience you can watch the balloon inflate and help pack it up when your flight is over!

Play in a Rec League

If you’ve been wanting to dust off your softball mitt or get back to kicking a ball on the grass, there’s an adult league for you as part of the Fishers Parks & Recreation programming. They also offer kids camps, plus activities and socialization for seniors.
