Central Canal Trail Homes for Sale
The canal has a three mile walkway alongside the remnants of the original Central Canal, which runs from the White River State Park north to 11th Street. The original Central Canal was intended to be part of a large-scale Indianapolis business project envisioned to improve transportation and shipping methods throughout Indiana through a series of canals. Due to a lack of proper funding for the project, the Indianapolis portion of the canal was never connected with any additional canals in Indiana; it was eventually acquired by the Indianapolis Water Company. The Water Company would use the canal for various power production activities until it was deeded to the city of Indianapolis in 1976.
