On June 3 at 9 am, join community leaders, as they roll out the White River Vision Plan.
Connect with neighbors and volunteer at community clean ups organized along the White River in both Hamilton and Marion Counties. There are two separate cleanups for you to join at 10 am Tuesday morning, at either Lake Indy Boat Ramp or at River Road Park. Each cleanup is a direct reflection of the City's efforts to enhance our precious waterways. What better way to celebrate than to give the White River some extra love? Plus, the campaign is partnering with Indiana Humanities for a drop-in art activity Tuesday night. This special event is held at Oliver Woods Nature Preserve, a hidden gem along the White River by the Keystone area.
One day only, select restaurants on and near the White River are offering exclusive discounts to celebrate the plans launch. Ask about the White River at these locations to receive a deal after 4 pm:
Or, plan your own special evening and pack a picnic to eat alongside the river. Potter's Bridge Park in Noblesville, White River State Park in Indy, and many other picnic friendly locations are great spots to celebrate the plans for the White River.
Over the last year, Indiana Humanities has focused its award-winning Next Indiana Campfires program on the White River watershed and the larger question of how Hoosiers relate to water and to each other across watersheds. To explore these connections further, Indiana Humanities funded the creation of three short films about the White River that will be available for viewing.
Screen the films at Nickel Plate District, Pavilion Conference Room, in Fishers from 11:30 am-1 pm with complimentary snacks and drinks. RSVP here.
Also happening Thursday night - Holliday Park Summer Concert Series, partnered with Indy Parks. The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra will be serendading the river's future with this special concert, beginning at 7:30 pm.
We love to actively use our waterways, which is what this campaign is all about! Now it's time to put words into action this Friday. In the morning, join your coworkers for Canoe to Work Day, made possible by Christopher Burke Engineering. Later in the day, head to Federal Hill Commons in Noblesville for a free yoga class to continue the celebration. The activity doesn't end there! From 7 pm to 9 pm, hop on a quick 20 minute riverside urban hike beginning north of New York Street on the West Side of Indy. Then, enjoy a free riverside concert with Palace on the Indy Convergence A Rising Tide riverside stage at the New York Street Bridge and White River Parkway West Drive. The concert is open to the public - feel free to bring chairs and blankets!
Finally, join Mayor Joe Hogsett for the New York Street Bridge Lighting at 9 pm.
