“Unique and vibrant area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a gem of urban planning, with residential units and offices mixed with hotel, universities, museums and public art, all lining a canal. People rent boats, bike or stroll along either side of the canal, beside ducks and fountains, with attractive pedestrian bridges crossing every half mile or so. This is a wonderfully executed public space. Congrats to the planners that envisioned it!

“Great for a walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Great for a walk. You won't feel like you're in downtown Indianapolis. The war memorial located on the wall is pretty neat too.

If you are looking to get out and about this was the place to go. It has some beautiful scenery and is never too busy. They also have gandalas available for rent!

It is nice to walk along or run by self or with someone. Popular on weekend. Many good paintings on the wall and they often change them.
