Hello Fishers! I’m Sarah Sandquist, Director of Fishers Parks. Fishers has 24 parks spread throughout the City, ranging in size and function from pocket parks like Cheeney Creek Nature Area to larger parks like Holland Park and Brooks School Park. Each park has its own character and there is something for everyone!

Life is better on the beach, especially when you can soak up the sun without leaving Fishers! Saxony Lake and Beach (13358 Pennington Road) offers residents and visitors a chance to feel the sand beneath their toes at this 20-acre lake and 300-foot beach made from Indiana sand. From building sandcastles with the kids to swimming in the lake during sunny days, Saxony Lake and Beach offers summer fun for the whole family.

Here are 5 reasons you should visit Saxony Beach!

1. The Water

Saxony Lake is a 20-acre lake with a zero-depth entry and has the perfect depth of swimming area for little ones to explore without worrying they will go too deep.

2. The Sand

The 300-foot beach allows plenty of space to build your dream castle, out of sand! Bring your shovel and pail, and get building.

3. The Aquapark

New for 2021, channel your inner athlete and spend some time on the Aquaglide Aquapark. Our new inflatable feature includes opportunities to climb, run, and slide off a large inflatable park!

4. Kayak and SUP Rentals

Saxony Beach is the perfect size body of water for an afternoon kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) rental. Enjoy the calm water and see what types of wildlife you can find living in the tall grasses that surround the lake.

5. Shelters

Pack a picnic and enjoy under the shelter at the park. No reservations needed, the shelter is first come, first served.

While there are of course many more than five reasons to visit any of our parks, I hope this list inspires you to visit Saxony Beach soon! Daily beach entry is free for Fishers residents and $5/person for non-residents. Plan ahead and purchase your tickets in advance.
