About Sodalis Nature Park
Sodalis Nature Park is 210 acres of beautiful, mature woodlands and reforestation area, which serves as home to an abundant array of native Indiana wildlife. Visitors can enjoy fishing in the 5.5-acre pond, hiking over 3.5 miles of nature trails and relaxing in the picnic area. The park exists within a permanently protected conservation area established to protect the endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis).
This park was made possible due to a collaborative agreement between Hendricks County Parks & Recreation, the Indianapolis Airport Authority and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Situating a park in the midst of a habitat of an endangered species is a unique opportunity and has been made possible through the tremendous community spirit of each agency involved. The park serves as another example of why Hendricks County is a wonderful place to call home, both for our residents and the Indiana bat.
