A Day at 100 Acres

Archer refused to swing.
A few weekends ago, the weather was perfectly cool, brisk, and sunny so we took the dogs to one of our favorite spots in town, the 100 Acres Nature Park at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. This is one of our favorite places to steal away to when we have a free morning or afternoon, but I hadn't been since my bike accident in the spring, which made walking on uneven ground treacherous until recently. The grounds are beautiful and a trail around the lake makes for a gorgeous long ramble in any season. Sculpture is mixed in with the natural features of the park and the balance is really lovely. Here are a few pictures of our day. I think Archer and Lola would agree that it's just about their favorite place to frolic!

The whole park is like a playground for grownups.
Kids do like it, too. Case in point.
The hanging branches have lightbulbs in them. Wouldn't this be a gorgeous spot for a cocktail hour?
Lola never faces the camera.
Playing on Atelier Van Lieshout's Funky Bones

Where do you go to play?



  1. Looks like a lovely day. As soon as I saw the last picture I realized those are the bones from The Fault in Our Stars. Looks like a cool place.

  2. Yes! The bones are definitely a local landmark :)
