The Indianapolis Museum of Art's new art and nature park was the place to be this weekend. And the crowd came out on Sunday. I'll be writing about it for my upcoming IBJ column. But, in the meantime, what are your thoughts on the park and its kick-off works?

There's a chance, of course, that you opted to wait to visit the IMA's new backyard attraction. Then what did you do? Check in with "Jersey Boys" at the Murat or "High School Musical" at Beef & Boards? (My thoughts on both can be found here.) Or was the wait for "Toy Story 3" too much to stand?

Tell what you saw, heard or otherwise experienced this weekend.

Your thoughts?

  • Another "Must See" for Indianapolis
    Sunday morning I biked the 100 Acre trails (only mountain bikes will work), stopping to reflect on the art and the well-crafted bridges and buildings. I look forward to returning with family and friends to share thoughts about this mind-expanding addition.
  • Simply Fabulous
    This is truly a "must see" in Indy and a wonderful addition to the culture we get to experience here. Even kids can enjoy the art and sculpture (you could tell by the kids having fun climbing on the benches around the lake and running through the "basketball court" at the opening yesterday)! Wear comfortable shoes. Take a picnic. Plan to spend time to enjoy the beauty.
    The performance art at the opening yesterday was a wonderful addition as well - added even more life to the art. I hope they continue to include that aspect!!
  • Hot
    Boring and hot!!
  • 100 Acres Biking
    Brock: I thought you were not allowed to bike on the trails. Because I wanted to do that myself, but I read that bicycles were not allowed on the trails. True?
  • Hotter
    Very hot. It's a great place to visit if you enjoy being bombarded by politically correct, environmentally-bent, left-wing art...
  • 100 Acres
    We really enjoyed the 100 Acres opening but are still recovering from the heat. Wow, it was hot. Might not be a bad idea to include a water sculpture for some cooling off ...
  • Bicycles
    Thanks for the feedback, everyone! I work at the IMA, and I did want to answer the bicycle question. While we want to encourage people to ride bicycles to the park, the trails were designed for people on foot, and are not made for bicycles. We'd love for visitors to continue to ride to the park, and to secure their bikes at the bike racks provided at both entrances before entering.

Bravo!_____NBCSN is available in almost 2 MILLION more homes than just a few years ago, but Indycar STILL gets less total viewers than it did just a few years ago when NBC took over Versus. Attendance and ratings cratered with the end of season races (just when the title battle got "interesting" HAH!__________And now...new race in Basilia, where Miles celebrated the "rich history" of Indycar racing there.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
