Park Updates Part of Clay Township Impact Program Investment
Carmel, Ind. (March 26, 2020) – On or after April 15, Flowing Well Park will close to undergo planned improvements, including Cool Creek bank stabilization, restroom construction, parking lot expansion, and updated interpretive signage and trails. The Clay Township Impact Program funds these enhancements as part of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s Reimagining Parks initiative. The park will reopen after construction is complete in December of 2020.
“The updates will make Flowing Well Park more functional for the everyday visitor,” said Michael Allen, CCPR Director of Parks & Natural Resources. “We are expanding not only access to trails but recreational opportunities. To me, beyond being good stewards of quality habitat, the next most important thing is getting people to see it and value it.”
Over the next three years, the Clay Township Impact Program will fund improvements to six parks in our community with a focus on parks and public safety. These improvements will provide benefits for all township residents, schools and businesses and make our community a better place to live, work and play.

If you visit the park before April 15, due to COVID-19, CCPR encourages park visitors to refrain from using the artesian well. Water spigots should not be touched. Please continue using social distancing while utilizing the trails at the parks.
