Fishers Parks and Recreation Department: Giving Fun to Fishers
Like almost everything in the quickly growing Indianapolis suburb of Fishers, Indiana, the Fishers Parks and Recreation Department actively looks for ways to serve its people. Maintaining pace with the town’s growth factor takes some doing; Fishers has seen a whopping 600% increase in its population recently, so the Parks and Recreation Department has its work cut out for it.
In this town of just under 70,000, there are 376 developed acres of Fishers parks and over 150 acres more that have yet to be developed, plus 61 miles of formal trails.
Fishers is proud of its many activity centers provided and overseen by the Parks and Recreation Department. Along with its community pools and golf courses, there are two reservoirs for water sports and a brand new Fishers YMCA.
