  • The park is nothing special, at least during winter days but, the worst thing ever, is that the parking meter at the surface parking, where you'd pay 5$ for 1 hour, doesn't give any change. Unfortunat...  more »

  • Wonderful oasis in the city. It can be very peaceful. It feels safe during daylight and early evenings. Nice breezes and people there for fun. Easy access from east end of zoo parking lot. Romantic. The acoustics under the bridges are great.
  • Beautiful park and cheap parking a dollar an hour secured parking love it. Tons to do!! We did THE GLO RUN so much fun! Oh FYI for all Pokémon hunters great spots for some rares!! But go visit to see which ones!! ;)
  • Lovely green space in downtown indianapolis at the end of the downtown canal. Check out the ever-rotating public art installations on the bridge over White River ... or during the summer take in a concert during the summer concert series. There are always runners, walkers, bikers, and other events going on from spring through fall.
  • My wife and I took our one -year-old here on a weeknight. We rented a tandem bike and rode along the canal. The views were very pretty. There were a lot of people jogging, biking, etc. and the park is very well-maintained. The area feels very safe, and it's an enjoyable place to explore.
  • Beautiful city park that feels safe in the day. Never been there at night
