White River State Park

We are finally into the official summer season, even though the calendar indicates that there are a few weeks left of spring. The temperature is rising, schools are finishing up for the year and soon families will be heading to outdoor destinations for a little fun.

You'd have a hard time finding a better outdoor space than the White River State Park in Indianapolis. Actually, it's not just the outdoor spaces that make Indiana's only urban state park so great, it's the combination of outdoor attractions paired with some great indoor museums and attractions.

Located in the heart of downtown Indy, the spectacular waterfront walkway, river promenade and central canal provide for a beautiful view and ideal spot for a walk or to just sit and relax and reflect. An outdoor amphitheater overlooks the water and allows for lawn seating for 6,000. Also part of the landscape is the Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial celebrating 3,410 Americans who have received the award, the highest bestowed for military valor.

The park encompasses 250 acres of green space and several other attractions, including the minor league ballpark, Victory Field, the Indianapolis Zoo, the Indiana State Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, IMAX Theater and NCAA Hall of Champions. Visit
