Recognized as the 2018 Accelerating Indiana Municipalities (AIM) Green Community of the Year for population of 50,000 to 99,000 and an AIM Green Community for the past 11 years, Fishers is continuing to raise the bar on its sustainable efforts.
From new ways to reduce your environmental footprint at the Fishers Farmers’ Market to cutting-edge stormwater initiatives, there are plenty of ways to help the environment and go green in Fishers.
To increase water quality and reduce chemical usage, Fishers Department of Public Works (DPW) created self-sustaining, eco-friendly ponds at Cyntheanne Park and the Nickel Plate District AMP that include underwater aeration systems, fisheries, and aquatic shoreline plantings. These elements supply better quality water to sports fields and turf, producing deeper, healthier root systems and thicker, more lush turf quality.
Splash pads at Holland Park and Billericay Park and the fountain at the Pavilion at the Nickel Plate District AMP are eco-friendly, as well, utilizing a water recycling system that saves the city and environment approximately 100,000 gallons of water a day.
Fishers Trails allow residents to enjoy nature, stay fit, and protect the environment that serves as a pedestrian / bicyclist oriented network of trails that link parks, neighborhoods, schools, the Municipal Complex, businesses, and other points of interest in the community. More than 131 miles are currently available for use.
