Morningside Park in Muncie

Centrally located in the Morningside Neighborhood, Morningside Park is accessible at the dead-end of Cornell on the eastern side of Hamilton Ditch. A footbridge spanning the ditch provides pedestrian access for residents along the western side of the ditch. A small parking lot divides the park in half with a basketball court and bleachers on the north side and a picnic shelter with picnic tables, a playground, and a port-a-pot on the south side. In the last 5 years, the Park has had a new sign installed, the shelter repaired, the basketball court resurfaced and the grill replaced.

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.
