Here are some things we love about this neighborhood, if anyone is interested.

We are super duper close to the Butler University campus. We can walk or bike there in just a few minutes.   We are equally close to the IMA ( Indiana Museum of ART) which  boasts beautiful gardens, sculpture and water features.  We spend a lot of time over there with our kiddos.  We can bike or jog to the TOE PATH which runs through Indianapolis and connects you to downtown, Broadripple and the MONON trail.  You can drive downtown WITH traffic in 7 minutes, 10 minutes with a snow storm.   You can drive to Broadripple in 7 minutes.  Did I mention that we border Illinois st. that has Million dollar homes?  We are surrounded in all directions with WONDERFUL neighbors that are social and take great care of their lawns and homes.  There are a few local city parks that you can walk to in about 5 minutes, one of those has a water park for kiddos.
