Spring is here and we know you’re excited to get outside and enjoy the weather! At Brownsburg Parks, we have a variety of activities for you to engage with nature, whether it’s visiting a park or attending one of our nature recreation programs.

Check out our best ideas to enjoy the parks below and don’t forget to share your park trip with us on social media using the hashtag #brownsburgparks!

Take a Hike on Maple Ridge Trail

Be sure to keep your eyes open as you walk through the wooded trail at Williams Park, you never know what you might see! Hiking is a great way to stay active and Maple Ridge Trail offers some of the best views of nature in Brownsburg!

Go on a Nature Scavenger Hunt

How many plants can you spot in our parks? Help us identify our flora and fauna in the parks by joining our free iNaturalist program. iNaturalist is an app that allows you to take photos of plants to identify them! This helps our Natural Resources team to record the resources our parks have as well as identify problem areas.

Take a Nature Class

Ready to learn more about our local wildlife and native plants? Want to learn how you can protect our environment? Sign your family up for one of our FREE nature programs! Afterwards, take a hike with our park naturalist and put your new knowledge to the test!
