The Ruins of Holliday Park | Remnants From New York’s First Skyscraper

I had read about the Holliday Park ruins and wanted to see them for myself.  Plus the park was supposed to have a lot of hiking trails that I could take my dog on.  Neither the ruins nor the trails disappointed.

Dawn at the Ruins | Holliday Park

These ruins are from the facade of the St. Paul building, New York’s first skyscraper, after it was demolished to build a modern skyscraper on the site.  Click the provided link to read about how the façade, with three massive statues made of Indiana limestone called “the Races of Man” ended up in Indianapolis' Holliday Park.

Nice Night for an Evening

Holliday Park has quickly become one of my favorite parks in the Indianapolis area. I'd recommend it to dog owners, especially if that dog likes the water since most of the trails end up along the White River.  For directions and more info go to visitindy.
