“Lovely”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We walked and paddled the canal during the day then went back one evening for dinner and walked it again. It is very peaceful and hard to believe it is in the middle of a bustling downtown. The murals under the bridges are interesting. it is a great place to people watch and just relax.

“Wow was not expecting this”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Amazing area right in the middle of the city, great place for a walk or even a cycle we hired go carts for $10 each and cycled round fun way to see the area, stopped off for a coffee overlooking the canal later in the day. Fantastic day around

“Quiet walk by the water”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Enjoyed a nice walk down the canal, saw the ducks, many people jogging, and enjoyed the nice weather. You can rent a paddle boat, a bike, or just take a hike. We also stopped at one of the very few places along the canal to have a beverage and light snack. Easy access to and from the various museums and hotels along the way.

“Lovely Walk and Nice Views”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The canal is a lovely walk. You meander through residential areas, making turns to see views of the Indianapolis skyline. With adjacent museums, it's easy to wander along and find stops along the way. There are opportunities to rent kayaks and paddle boats, for paddling down the canal. You can also rent bikes and surreys.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Lots of art and sculpture. Not too crowded. Go see everything along the canal! You can rent a paddle boat or just walk along either side.
