Broad Ripple Village is a near North neighborhood of Indianapolis, Indiana. It is a rich and complex community largely because, through the years, it has attracted and accommodated the unusual, the offbeat, and the independent along with the traditionalist, the established and the pragmatic. This mix lends an air of sophistication to its character – an honest worldliness largely devoid of affectation. Hip and with it, there is always a myriad of activity in Broad Ripple: art, poetry, live music, fine dining, quick food, spas and salons, unique mom and pop shops, grocery stores … all comprise the elements that make urban life desirable.

The other face of Broad Ripple is the one most appreciated by its residence – the village ambiance. Quaint cottages and bungalows arranged along quiet streets shaded by mature trees which hearkens back to a slower more natural way of life for which many of us in our hurried culture hold a deep longing. This, in conjunction with the White River, the Water Company Canal, the Monon Trail and numerous parks points to the strong connection Broad Ripple has to Mother Nature. Broad Ripple has a Green soul.
