The Creekstomper is a mobile recreation vehicle to deploy mobile play equipment and offer programming at a variety of events and locations including local parks, community events, festivals and more.

The vehicle was previously part of the Zionsville Police Department’s fleet and served as a mobile forensics lab. Before that, it was a Zionsville Fire Department ambulance. The town will once again see a return on its investment as the vehicle is transformed to serve the community in yet another new way.
Creekstomper features images of many of the attractions and amenities in Zionsville parks including cycling, sports, kayaking, Eagle Creek and wildlife. From spring thru fall the mobile recreation vehicle will offer different programs and activities for the community to drop in and enjoy.
