  • This is a great place to spend a summer afternoon! Park near the Indians arena and walk along the river; visit the State Museum and relax on a bench in Military Park (or cross the walking bridge and visit the Indianapolis Zoo!); then grab a bite to eat at one of the fantastic downtown Indianapolis restaurants! All of this is within walking distance from White River State Park. The grounds of the park are well-kept and there are plenty of places to sit and relax. Great place to bring the family!
  • Very spacious seats and comfortable. It's a great place to take your family out! One of my favorite places to walk downtown! Hit up the museum, catch a baseball game, walk the canal, and enjoy the day.Great place to take a large group of students to roam free and have a little fun.
  • My husband and I always enjoy our time spent here and just enjoy walking around the area, plus that exciting day that we stumbled upon the zoo entrance at the end of the pathway that we took, when we were relatively new to the area! Nice to walk around even in the colder weather.
  • Beautiful park, lots to do. Lots of activities to include in your day. Loads of sights to see within walking distance.
  • I love dodging all the goose turds here at times. Keeps ya agile and ready for anything.
