It is located at 7840 W. 56th Street in Indianapolis, Indiana and covers approximately 1,400 acres (5.7 km2) of a reservoir and 3,900 acres (16 km2) of land.

Before coming into the possession of Indianapolis, the land was owned by Purdue University, and by Josiah K. Lilly Jr. before that. The Eagle Creek Park Foundation serves to promote volunteerism and provide funding for the Park and its programs. The NCAA Rowing Championships were held in the Park in 2003 and the World Rowing Championships were held there in 1994. The 1987 Pan American Games used the park for regatta and archery.
