About

History

Landscape and history blend in a unique setting in Northeast Indianapolis at Ft. Harrison State Park. Located at Post Road and 59th Street, the park features walking and jogging trails, a sledding hill, an interpretive center, guided horse trail rides, hayrides, picnic sites, fishing access to Fall Creek, two national historic districts, and The Fort Golf Resort and Conference Center.

As a historic landmark, The Fort Golf Resort & Conference Center has a rich and colorful heritage. It once served as the Officer’s Club of Ft. Benjamin Harrison. In 1995, due to base realignment and closure processes, 1700 acres of the 2500-acre military post were acquired by the State of Indiana. They became Ft. Harrison State Park, The Fort Golf Course and The Garrison Restaurant and Conference Center.

Today, Fort Harrison State Park continues to preserve the green space that the Army kept out of development from 1903-1996. Today, you can experience forests and meadows, wildlife, and revealing glimpses of the past.
