This August I got a chance to visit Indianapolis Canal Park and inspired a lot by that project.

Indianapolis Canal Walk  is a great case for our questions:

  1. How to integrate conventional urban infrastructure with urban landscapes as green infrastructure.
  2. Can Landscape be a fundamental role in the development of urban areas?
  3. Is it possible to create a green corridor in a crowded downtown area and provide multiple serves and enjoyments for citizens and tourists without sacrificing opportunity for further development?

 

The Canal Walk successfully transformed a dilapidated riverfront area  into a cultural corridor, meanwhile, it connects downtown area with White River state park and successfully creates a continuous experience for tourists and citizens to appreciate the beauty of magnificent natural attractions, cultural institutions,  and vitality of urban life.

Now it has become an important destination for all people and a cultural icon for the Indianapolis city.
