I rode my segway through the entire canal and found it incredibly easy to maneuver on and off the canal for pit stops and the sites were interesting and fun.

Even in the Winter one can enjoy a walk on this place. It is better in the Summer, but no matter when it is good. It is a great place for a romantic walk or with kids.

The canal is part of the cultural trail and I loved the murals painted along the way. It seemed to be a mainstay of Indy life with many people walking and jogging along.

This is a very nice landmark in Indianapolis. A long walk over a nice area with many activities to do. Perfect to go with kids, spend the afternoon or stop in one of the many restaurants around.
