Cornerstone Park

The completion of Cornerstone Park was a collaborative effort between the City of Muncie, George & Francis Ball Foundation, Ball Brothers Foundation, the Community Foundation of Muncie-Delware County, Community Enhancement Projects (CEP), Jay-Crew Landscaping and the Muncie Redevelopment Commission.  Adjacent to Fireman's Park, Cornerstone Park began as a redevelopment of a former Muncie brownfield, and now features a performance stage, greenspace, and a tribute to the partnership between Ball State University and the City of Muncie.  The park also features Muncie's newest display of public art, EXTESS.  Designed and installed by Muncie's very one ProjectiOne, the piece is a symbolic representation of the momentum and vibrancy of Muncie's downtown.

Robert F. Kennedy visited Muncie in May of 1968. The Ball State men’s Gym was selected as the location for Kennedy’s speech; however there was much concern over filling all the seats in the gym. Conversely, the Gym was filled to capacity, with an estimated 9,000 people filling all the seats and the entire playing court, after playing waiting hours for Kennedy’s appearance.
