Geist Waterfront Park construction underway in Fishers

News

FISHERS, Ind. — The new Geist Waterfront Park is officially under construction.

The city purchased the land in 2018 to preserve the last remaining undeveloped parcels of Geist Reservoir to build a regional park. Officials broke ground on the 70-acre site Friday morning. When it’s finished, it will provide the only public access to the reservoir and it will include a beach, waking trails, a non-motorized boat launch, and picnic areas.

“What we heard loud and clear from our residents is they wanted a dynamic and diverse park system. And this asset right back here, Geist Reservoir, is a unique opportunity for our community to really have access to water,” said Fishers mayor Scott Fadness.

The first phase, which includes the beach, dock access, and a playground, is scheduled to be completed next year. It will take nearly 20 years for all three phases of the waterfront park to be finished.
