How and Where to Play Outdoors in Hendricks County This Winter
Though we still need to take precautions, there is still much fun to be had in Hendricks County. Here are some great outdoor events to enjoy this holiday season.
The Market at Penguin Park
Saturday, Dec. 5 from 1 to 4 pm
The Market at Penguin Park offers outdoor ice skating. You can skate with the Grinch and Buddy the Elf. There is also great food available from The Grumpy Gringo and The Frigid Frog. Other fun activity highlights include farm fresh Christmas trees for sale by local Boy Scouts, and a good selection of arts and crafts vendors to pick up the perfect unique and one of a kind present. You can also see Santa and mail your wish list to the North Pole while exploring Santa’s Village. For more information, you can click here
Curling at Penguin Park
Once only an obscure winter sport that hardly anyone watched during the Olympics, curling is now a favorite winter pass time. This is the game of sliding a big heavy piece of stone that has an attached handle down a marked space of ice as your teammates use their best sweeping skills to help guide it to the center of the target on the other end of the ice.
Right now at Penguin Park, you are able to rent a curling lane and see why people love the game so much. If you decide you really love it or are looking to meet new people in the community you can even join a curling program.
Party in an Igloo
Have the best winter party of the season or just be the super cool favorite parent for a month by hosting a party in an igloo for your kids and up to 9 friends. You can rent an igloo at Penguin Park. The package comes with use of the igloo for up to 10 kids, pizza, cupcakes, drinks, and time for ice skating. When the party is over you don’t have to clean up, it is all done for you.
Wintertime Wander in Pecar Park
Saturday, Dec. 19 starting at 5 pm
Capacity is limited for this event in the town of Avon so click here to register as soon as possible. Come out to the park and walk the beautifully lit luminary path, enjoy a warm bonfire, snack on some pre-packaged smores, visit the cute animals in the Nature Center, take some fun photos at the photo booth, and make your own nature lantern.
It is a favorite thing to do around here and for good reason. There are countless great places for sledding all around the county. Washington Township Park in Avon, Ellis Park in Danville, and Hummel Park in Plainfield are some of the most popular places to sled with some great steep hills for adventurous and fun sledding. So if you want to get out, enjoy the snow, and see other people enjoying life all around you while still safely distanced in a safer outdoor setting, grab your sled after the snow falls and head to the park.
