    Indianapolis has nice municipal parks. See http://www.indygov.org/indyparks. We liked a review someone had written in the local newspaper about the Holliday park. We spent a few hours exploring its nature trails,its architectural display called 'the ruins' and the good playground equipment for young kids, plus it had a nature center, that was closed on Monday, the day we visited.

    One word of caution, the park looked safe and a lot of families were enjoying the facilities, but someone had broken into a vehicle in the parking lot near the playground when we arrived by breaking a window. This was in the early afternoon in bright daylight. I would take care not to take purses or valuables and leave them where someone could break in and get them.

    Other parks lookd great for hiking, rollerblading, or boating, or golfing. If you are planning a trip to Indianapolis to see the children's museum and have extra time, check out the IndyParks web page for a park nearby where you are staying.

    Conner Prarie Farm and Museum, one of America's leading living history museums. Much like Williamsburg. A living history museum. (I guess I'd better go back!) about 1/2 hour north and east of Indianapolis. Call 317-776-6000.

    Bloomington, IN -- think Indiana if flat with cornfields? Not around Bloomington. The Home of Indiana University, Bloomington is culturally diverse with Thai, Indian, Mongolian, Eretrian, etc. restaurants but also Nick's, a great American bar and Indiana Univerity tradition. Visit the home of one of the World's best known Schools of Music, with Opera, Symphony, Jazz, and more. Want to stay? MANY motels and hotels and many restaurants. AND the geography is scenic with many hills and woods. One of the country's most beautiful University campuses!

    Stoney Creek is located just east of Noblesville on St. Rd. 38 and is a great place in the fall and winter. They have horse drawn sleigh rides in the winter (If there is snow) and a great pumpkin patch and festival in Oct.

    here is a map to help you find Bloomington. Bloomington is NOT like much of Indiana. It is very hilly and wooded!
