This might sound counter-intuitive, but you might want to head north for spring break next year.

Geist Waterfront Park is set to open in Fishers (111th Street + Olio Road) on Saturday, March 18, 2023 making it the only spot for Hoosiers to use Geist Reservoir without a boat.

Fishers residents will get in for free at the $27 million beach + nature park that spans 70 acres. Potential plans for the park include:

  • a 100-yard-long beach
  • rehabilitation of multiple ecosystems in the area
  • a fishing dock
  • natural playscapes
  • green infrastructure systems

On Saturday, Nov. 19, Hoosiers will have an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the parkโ€™s progress during a free preview night as Phase 1 construction wraps up for the year. The event will include games, activities, music + food trucks. Register your car load.
