This was walking distance from our hotel and I believe it is about one and a half miles long connecting to the White River State Park. At the end is a great little restaurant called Creation Cafe

We often take time to walk along the canal when we visit family in Indianapolis. It’s a great stroll on a pretty day. On our last visit in September, we were fortunate to see the IUPUI Regatta on the canal – fun! When you pass one of the museums, be sure to notice the steam clock. Statues, fountains, monuments, and flags are great sites along the way, as well as the downtown Indianapolis skyline.

We walked the canal in the evening with children. The children needed the exercise as the had been in the car most of the day. It was a pleasant place for a walk. We felt safe and the children enjoyed the outing.

Spending time strolling hand in hand by the city skyline, watching families and friends smile as they ride boats & bikes, talk and spend quality time is just good fun. Slow down and take a walk around the water...you'll enjoy.

On this visit we drove to Indianapolis specifically to visit the Central Canal area. We rented a paddle boat because we had never tried that before. It was fun, but you then have a time constraint to get the boat back before you are charged for extra time. I would just walk the canal next time so you could stop whenever you want to look at something. Our 2 teenagers went with us on this trip and both enjoyed the boat ride and taking pictures on the canal. Very beautiful walkway in May. Lots of flowers in bloom.
