Flowing Well Park


Flowing Well Park is surrounded by roads and residential development, yet it offers an opportunity to stroll amongst large trees and numerous spring wildflowers. Most visitors never get past the artesian well, but paths meander through woods adjacent to Cool Creek. Unfortunately, traffic noise is constant and sometimes obtrusive.

Trails

In the western portion of the park, a figure eight trail passes by several large sycamore trees. In spring, this area is home to one of the nicest Virginia bluebell patches I've seen in Indiana.

Other wildflowers include Dutchman=s breeches, squirrel corn, jack-in-the-pulpit, and the occasional bloodroot or trillium. Wild ginger is abundant here, and its heart-shaped leaves carpet large areas well into fall.
