Jacks Park in Muncie

Located south of the commercial area of McGalliard Rd., Jack’s Park serves the Granville Park Neighborhood and residents in an undesignated neighborhood along N. Elm St. Entirely fenced in, Jacks Park has a parking lot along Elm St. with two pedestrian entrances, located at the northwest and southwest corners of the park. Dunn Ave. dead-ends into the northeast corner of Jack’s Park, where an additional pedestrian entrance is located.

Jack’s park contains a basketball court, picnic table, playground equipment, and many large mature trees. Playground equipment ranges from a spiral slide in good condition to older equipment including a merry-go-round, concrete figures, and swings.

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.
