INDIANAPOLIS -

An 8-mile bike and pedestrian path that links Indianapolis' greenways with its cultural districts has been honored by an international group as one of best public spaces of its kind.

The International Downtown Association last week honored the Indianapolis Cultural Trail with its 2013 Pinnacle Award in the public spaces category. The trail was championed by the late Gene and Marilyn Glick, Indianapolis philanthropists who donated tens of millions of dollars for a wide range of projects.

The Indianapolis Cultural Trail beat out 23 other entries to win the public space honor that recognizes capital improvements that enhance a downtown area's design, physical function or economic viability.

International Downtown Association President and CEO David Downey says the Hoosier capital's trail "is a wonderful example for all downtowns to emulate."
