There's lots to do at the entrance of the park. Rent bikes or paddle boats or just walk along the canal. There are several sculptures spread out here and there. Pretty cool set up.

It's wonderful to see area. Great park/open space in a major City. It was a beautiful day and I walked around this area. If I lived in Indy I could see being here often.

This was a beautiful view. My husband and I stubbed across it when we were leaving the museum. Go visit in the summer and you can rent boats, bicycles or ride in a gondola.

The white river park is close and easy walk from downtown. It's a great central area perfect to spend some time with family. We visited it on a freezing Jan day but it was still nice and pleasant.
