Vehicle Traffic Allowed Back in Eagle Creek Park Thursday

Vehicle Traffic Allowed Back in Eagle Creek Park Thursday

Beginning Thursday, vehicles will be allowed back inside Eagle Creek Park.

Indy Parks Spokeswoman Ronnetta Spalding says restricted vehicle access was put into place last month to decrease crowds and excessive traffic throughout the park to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

"Folks have been great with allowing us to address some of the overcrowding that we have seen in the park the past few months so we did have to make minor restrictions to vehicle traffic and we are just so proud to be able the park to vehicle traffic," says Spaulding.

The park has still been open to pedestrians and cyclists.

Indianapolis' four dog parks, Broad Ripple Bark Park, Gordon Gilmer Canine Companion Zone (Eagle Creek Park), Paul Ruster Dog Park, and Smock Dog Park, will also open back up on Thursday.
