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.

Hard to find. Difficult to park, and not a big deal once there. A few good restaurant, but other than that, I don't see the attraction. Sorry.

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.

The area, surrounded by restaurants, shopping and hotels is very pleasant, with many areas to sit in the shade. In the evening the water is covered with laser light show.

I wish I had one to ride. I only walked along the canal which is flat for the most part. It is a nice way to get around Scottsdale without going along with the cars. It is very clean, has unpaved areas for jogging and...More
