THE HEART OF CAPITOL RIVERFRONT
Canal Park is a 3 acre neighborhood-centric park that opened in 2012 as a model of sustainable design for an outdoor space. The park is home to seasonal markets and events, dancing fountains in the warmer months, and ice skating in the winter. After a year-long hiatus, the water features have now returned to Canal Park with the 42 water jets in the southern block on during designated daytime hours.
