“Great walk through the heart of museums”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

The canal is a great scenic walk that is very well laid out and all the museums along the route are beautifully built. The canal can get crowded at times with runners and slow moving groups. Great access to all the museums, Lucas Oil Field and the zoo is at the end of the canal.

“An oasis in downtown Indy”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

The canal is a wonderful escape partially hidden in the middle of the city. Jogging or skating along the sidewalk, gondola rides, free summer evening concerts on the grounds of the Historical Society--all of this and more make the canal a special place worth repeated visits.
