  • 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!! ;)
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This place is tough to review, because the venue is great, but the companies they allow to run the shows there are not. I had tickets for a concert on a Sunday night, and the company running the show decided to delay it for almost 2.5 hours because of an incoming storm. It didn't rain at all for 2 hours, plenty of time to have 70% of the show done. Instead, the company opened up the doors nearly 3 hours later to play an abbreviated show during a thunderstorm, likely so that they wouldn't have to give refunds or reschedule. I recommend the venue, but concert goers beware.
  • 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.
