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.

I grew up in Indiana, but moved away in the early 1980s. Admittedly, I had not been to Indy for a long time, but I was amazed at how beautiful the city is. Indy is so fortunate to have a state park within walking distance...More

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.

Great state park in downtown Indy. We enjoyed walking along the various waterways. We saw the ducks swimming which fascinated the kids. Stopped in at the visitor center & the lady working was super friendly.

This state park area is pretty much down town and is very pleasant. We were there when it was cold so I don't think they had as many events going on there, but for a morning stroll it was very pleasant. We enjoyed the peacefulness...More

Always a delightful walk along the canal and river. We walked all the way to the zoo this time. Make sure you stop at the small arboretum near the zoo. Has nice tropical feel and ever growing large plantings. All the museums along the park...More
