About the Park
This 80-acre park, located a quarter-mile southwest of the Village, is the largest park in Zionsville. Starkey Park is named for Lucile Starkey who bequeathed a major portion of the land to the Town in 1974 for use as a nature park.

The park’s wooded bottomland along Eagle Creek offers scenic beauty, hiking trails, nature study and perfect settings for photography. Youth and adult educational programs are offered here throughout the year. This park connects to the Big-4 Rail Trail and from there, to most of Zionsville's trail system.

Restricted Use
This facility is a restricted-use nature park. For example, bicycles are never allowed in the park and all pets must be on a six-foot leash with the other end held by their human companion.
