Flowing Well Park has officially repoened after undergoing planned improvements, including Cool Creek bank stabilization, restroom construction, parking lot expansion, and updated interpretive signage and trails. The Clay Township Impact Program funds these enhancements as part of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s Reimagining Parks initiative.
“The updates will make Flowing Well Park more functional for the everyday visitor,” said Michael Allen, CCPR Director of Parks & Natural Resources. “We are expanding not only access to trails, but recreational opportunities. To me, beyond being good stewards of quality habitat, the next most important thing is getting people to see it and value it.”

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (VWGoA) and the City of Carmel have joined together on a research project that uses existing city cameras and Volkswagen machine-vision software to help optimize traffic flows, analyze street usage patterns and support emergency response. This joint project is the first of its kind for Volkswagen globally. The company believes that its software could have applications in various multi-modal transportation solutions in cities worldwide.
