Gilbert Park in Muncie

Serving the Gilbert Neighborhood in one of Muncie’s locally recognized historic districts, this mini park offers
a picnic table, benches, and a small playground. Several trees are located throughout the property. Landscaping along the park’s southern boundary screens this park from a residence and a funeral home’s parking lot. Apartments border the park to the east, while Gilbert St. and Elm St. border the north and west boundaries, respectively, with residences across the streets. Most of the playground equipment is in fair condition. A curvilinear sidewalk, lined with shrubberies, dissects the park from southwest to northeast, with an adjoining curvilinear sidewalk leading to the northwest. Three benches line the curvilinear sidewalk. One of the benches is a gliding bench.

Corner of East Gilbert Street & North Elm Street

Built in 1928 at a cost of over $400,000, the Muncie Fieldhouse was built to house Muncie Central Bearcat basketball games. The Fieldhouse contains 7,635 seats, making it one of the largest high school gymnasiums in the country--a reflection on the importance of the game of basketball to Indiana.
