The Canal Walk is a 3-mile loop along the Central Canal that runs from White River State Park up to 11th street in Indianapolis. The Canal Walk is part of the Indiana Central Canal, which was dug in the early 1800s, in an effort to facilitate interstate commerce. Today, the refurbished Canal Walk serves the downtown community as a waterside promenade for walkers, runners, bikers and sightseers. The canal itself includes a steady stream of pedal boats, which may be rented west of the Indiana State Museum.
