When I found out that there was a free park that combined nature and art, I knew that I had to add a visit to the The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres to my list for my next visit.
The boys and I made it out last stop after a sightseeing trip to Indianapolis.
We pulled in the Indianapolis Museum of Art parking lot first but discovered that it was better to park a little closer to the trail. I still had to get a few pictures of the museum.
Our visit to the trail started with a sculpture that I’ve seen on Instagram and it was an instant hit with my boys.
Located on 100 acres adjacent to the Museum’s main campus, The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres includes woodlands, wetlands, meadows, and a 35-acre lake. 100 Acres is one of the largest museum art parks in the country and one of only a few to feature ongoing commissions of temporary, site-responsive artworks.
The park has a lot of sculptures that you can interact with.
There are 12 sculptures that you can discover along the trail around the lake.
There are lots of areas where you can stop and admire the beauty around you.
We had a limited amount of time to visit the park and it had started to rain during our visit or we definitely would have stayed longer.
We visited the art park toward the end of November but I would love to come back and visit at the peak of fall or during spring.
You can find out more about The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres from their website.
100 Acres is open daily from dawn to dusk.
