The Creekside Corporate Park Trail System is now open to the public. The 1-mile paved trail is open from dawn to dusk and is accessible from W. 106th Street, S. Main Street and Creek Way.
The conservation office park was built to attract corporations that want to be in a nature-like setting.
“It’s really the only conservation office park in the regional area where there are corporate headquarters as well as office buildings that are being built amongst ravines and woodlands,” said Amanda Dorman, Zionsville director of communications and community relations.
With the town committed to keeping 25 of the 41 acres of developable land as green space, Creekside Corporate Park includes a one-acre pocket park, a shelter and table, half basketball court, bike rack and more.
“There is something I think is really unique to Zionsville and the area—a stretch station. There are different pieces of exercise equipment on really soft rubbery ground so you can walk the trails and use some of this equipment for plyometrics and stretching,” Dorman said.
Dorman said the site offers a unique office park setting.
“I think it’s going to make coming to work a lot more exciting for the people that are working in this park,” she said. “They have these trails right outside their door. A lot of office parks don’t have a lot of green space.”
The park is the first in the area to use low impact development for its stormwater system.
“It results in little stormwater being discharged off the property,” Dorman said. “It’s not used often due to the cost, but in the long run it will prove to be beneficial.”
