County parks name tubing hill operations partner
The Times

Hamilton County Parks and Recreation has officially named Outdoor Excursions, Inc., a company led by longtime Noblesville resident and businessman, Brian Cooley, as the operations partner for its unique, new snow tubing facility - Koteewi Run, Seasonal Slopes, located in Strawtown Koteewi Park.

Cooley owns and operates the popular White River Canoe Company in Noblesville.

"Hamilton County Parks and Recreation and Outdoor Excursions Inc. are extremely excited about entering into this new partnership and the opportunity to offer an innovative recreational experience for our community's residents and visitors. The focus of the new partnership will be on providing a quality and safe visitor experience," said Allen Patterson, HCPR director. "Brian and his team bring to our family of staff and partners, a level of customer service, safety and professionalism that we welcome, and quite honestly, expect."

The opening of Koteewi Run in December 2017 brings the number of unique adventure offerings at Strawtown Koteewi Park to four. Koteewi Range, Koteewi Aerial Adventures, and Koteewi Stable and Trails opened in 2015, 2016, and 2017, respectively.

"We share in the excitement of adding a new outdoor excursion to our business. The addition of a winter operation allows us to retain year-round staff at OEI and White River Canoe Company and focus on providing a healthy, outdoor recreational experience for our guests - both locally and regionally," Cooley said.

The operations have been successful in attracting local and out-of-town customers. Visitors to the park can also enjoy adventuress in nature, as more than 500 acres of Koteewi Nature are preserved for birdwatching, hiking, biking and horseback-riding. Natural resource and natural history education is provided through the Taylor Center of Natural History, and Koteewi Trace interpretive exhibit. Those resources, combined with the Morris Farm Homestead at Strawtown, serve as the historic foundation for the park.
