Broad Ripple Village is one of six designated cultural districts in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. Located about seven miles north of Downtown Indianapolis, Broad Ripple contains many of Indianapolis' premier up scale restaurants, art galleries, and the Monon Trail. Originally an independent municipality, Broad Ripple was annexed by Indianapolis in 1922. It currently hosts an active social scene, fueled by the near presence of Butler University. A large number of private art galleries, bars, and independently owned restaurants line the Village's streets. Broad Ripple High School, one of the earliest Indianapolis Public Schools, is located within the Village.
