Guthrie Park in Muncie

Located in the Kenmore Neighborhood, Guthrie Park is a large greenspace, as committed by covenant, bounded by University Ave., Riley Rd., North St., and Winthrop Rd. Visitors from outside the neighborhood have to park in the grass. The park offers a large openspace for spontaneous play and two benches. Lined with trees, the park is home to multiple memorials to loved ones that once resided in the neighborhood. Remnants of a cement pond bordered by some large rocks provide variation to the site.

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.
