“Great walk near downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The canal is very well maintained and probably the best place to walk in the whole city. You can also ride your bike or run along it with many of the other people who are out enjoying it. Great views of downtown and many fountains to enjoy. Extends to the river where you can enjoy a lookout there.

“Great idea to build a canal adjacent to the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Who would have thought that you build a canal and walking path in a city where you would not expect it? What a great idea - it gets you to other things to see (right near the NCAA hq) and then takes you through a number of other areas.

Along the way are apartments, museums, restaurants, and other historical sights

We really enjoyed the walk along the canal
