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.

Located at:

Corner of East Gilbert Street & North Elm Street
Muncie, IN 47303

It is said that John Dillinger, the infamous bank robber passed through Muncie in July of 1933. He did not rob any banks here because he was afraid of a train hindering his getaway plan.
