“Fun place to hang out”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

We walked along the canal and just wondered around the park. There are lots of fun things to do--saw lots of people renting the buggy/bike things with their families, and some Segway (sp?) tours. . . The zoo is there, too, but costs about $10 (I'm from St. Louis where the zoo is FREE).

“Few blocks from downtown”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

A fun place to walk, jog or picnic. The added water features in this park are beautiful. The zoo is located across the river by bridge.

“great place to take a stroll or stop and enjoy a picnic with family or friends”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This is connected to White River Gardens and Indianapolis Zoo. Great way to spend a family day. You could also rent a paddle boat and tour the canal.

“Quaint!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

I went to a night concert here...really quaint and a neat place to watch and listen to music. There are seats you can buy with lawn chairs or just a place to stand.

“Great place to take a walk”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Really nice walking trails. Nice to see the river and skyline. Indy did a good job of taking a not-so-nice-river and making it into a nice riverfront.
