Visited on a chilly day, fall trees were still colorful... Peaceful atmosphere with benches for resting and lovely views of the canal, green spaces, and downtown Indianapolis.

Excellent vibe and scenery to experience. We even came across a really cool pool table next to an Italian Ice Palor.

We love eating along the canal and then taking a walk to look at the War Memorial there. We also enjoy renting the paddleboat for a little exercise after we have indulged to much on the great food found on the canal.
