Flowing Well Park

This 15-acre park was established in 1983, and parkgoers have frequented it ever since. Most visitors bring their empty water jugs to fill up at the “Old Faithful” artesian well, which was discovered back in the 1800s. Others come to enjoy the mile-long trail that wraps itself through the woods and provides numerous educational spots to learn about nature. Cool Creek winds throughout the park and is a great area to fish or take the kids creek stomping.

Visitors come from all around the state to enjoy the wonders of Flowing Well Park.

Each month, we perform testing on the artesian well. Artesian wells are required to be tested quarterly for bacteria, but Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation goes above and beyond and tests it more frequently than we legally have to. Monthly testing occurs in partnership with the City of Carmel’s Water Department. For more information about testing, please contact the City of Carmel Water Plant #5 at 317.571.2639.
