Volunteer with the Indianapolis Cultural Trail

Why Volunteer with the Indy Cultural Trail?

How does Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. maintain all 8 miles of the Trail, 2,500 square feet of stormwater planters, urban gardens, 29 Pacers Bikeshare Stations, 251 bikes, and 10 pieces of our Public Art Collection?

We rely on the 3,000+ volunteers we host annually.  Their time spent with us ensures the Cultural Trail is a beautifully maintained and vibrant community asset connecting people and places in downtown Indianapolis. Our volunteers are a vital part of the work that we do.

What do our volunteers do?

Volunteers help us by doing any of the following on a given day:

  • clearing the Trail of litter
  • removing debris from the stormwater planters
    • cleaning our bike share stations
  • or tending to our public gardens along the Trail

Our volunteers support our Trail all while engaging with the local community and connecting with Indianapolis. We have plenty of work to do! Most volunteer activities take place outside on the Trail and require some physical labor.
