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.

Quite close to downtown and museums, lovely open green spaces.... Very well maintained. It's very clean and easy to walk. Saw several people with dogs, so it seems dog friendly

Getting her is quite easy but you do have to pay for parking. The cheapest I found was $3 for an hour but they have better rates if you want to stay longer. You can start with the small souvenir shop/tourist center at the entrance....More
