Indy Greenways: Indianapolis’ Trail Network

The Indy Greenways constitute the metropolitan recreational trail system which serves to connect Marion County and the metropolis of Indianapolis via walking, jogging and running paths. Maintained and operated conjointly by the Greenways Foundation (an organization that is also helping to fund the Indianapolis Cultural Trail) and Indy Parks, an organization that deals with Indianapolis parks, the Indy Greenways represent some of the finest greenway systems in the world.
