Strange to see a canal in downtown Scotsdale. Lined with extremely expensive condos. A bit unique--but not a big deal to me.

A nice, quiet location with good shade and popular with individuals, couples and dog walkers. This area gets you away from the busier parts of downtown Scottsdale but is close to much of the shopping and restaurants.

Park by the restaurants and walk the canal. Great Shoppe and restaurants nearby. On a cooler day you can also walk to old town. Grab a brochure on the way.

March 2017 I walked for an hour every morning at 6:30 while staying at the Scottsdale Inn. Summer time it would be brutal.

the city has really fixed up the section close to everything in downtown Scottsdale. walking is easy, riding your bike can be challenging due to walkers, constant turns, events congesting the sidewalks. the artwork incorporating the water is always fun.

Not many years ago this was bare open land along the canal separating Old Town from the Fashion Square on Camelback. Now it is fringed with housing, shops and restaurants and the canal once just a water flow is a feature.
