Wabash & Erie Canal Park Photography Information

Help us continue to offer a scenic place to capture timeless memories.

If you are a commercial photographer, we invite you to join the mission

We hope you have enjoyed the picturesque setting of Wabash & Erie Canal Park, and we hope it provides great value for you as a photographer. Canal Park is not a public, tax-supported park, but rather a private entity that strives to promote preservation, education, and recreation.

As a non-profit organization, we invite all who enjoy the park to consider contributing to keeping this place vibrant and beautiful. We bear the full expense of maintenance and groundskeeping, and our volunteers contribute countless hours to gardening and landscaping. We also wish to keep the park accessible and free of admission fees because we owe our existence to this generous community.

We leave the amount up to you, because you know your business best. Please keep in mind: this only applies to photography that involves a paid fee, cash or other goods and services, to the photographer. This does not apply to individuals who take photographs on Canal Park property for non-commercial purposes.

Thank you for helping us serve the community and preserve an incredible piece of Indiana heritage!

Canal Park is Private Property offered for public benefit
