It is an 18-acre facility that, as the name suggests, offers a flowing artesian fountain from which guests can fill their jugs with water. While fishing is not allowed, there is a fun, nature trail, a 1-mile paved trail, and 2 picnic shelters, Flowing Well Park Shelter and Flowing Well Park Observation. Ample parking is provided.
Flowing Well Park is situated on 18 acres of wooded landscape and features an artesian well where Carmel people and children can fill up water bottles and jugs. This well provides a shady oasis after a long hike, run or walk on the Flowing Well Park nature trail in the park, or a place to relax on a warm Indiana day. Flowing Well is also a great place to fish and sit at the water’s edge of Cool Creek, which flows through the park. Benches line the creek bank and provide a serene place to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of the park.
In addition to hiking and relaxing by the artesian well, Flowing Well Park has a large shelter equipped with a grill for cooking up hotdogs and hamburgers. The shelter is perfect for Carmel events. Flowing Well Park is also the host of many Carmel school field trips. Signs explaining the intricate mechanics of the well and the wetlands portion of the park provide information to Carmel children. A number of wildflowers and animals call Flowing Well Park wetlands home.
Flowing Well Park is just minutes from downtown Carmel on the busy and accessible 116th Street. This popular Carmel Park provides a large parking lot for its visitors and is a great place to bring your family and friends for an event or hike.
