Thomas Park in Muncie

Serving the Thomas Park/Avondale Neighborhood, Thomas Park is bounded by Memorial Dr. to the north, 15th St. to the south, Rochester Ave. to the east and residences to the west. There are two parking lots, one along Rochester Ave, and one off of 15th St. An official sized baseball diamond is maintained for the exclusive use of baseball leagues. Other facilities include a basketball court, tennis courts, playground equipment, a picnic shelter, picnic tables, and openspace for spontaneous play. Multiple large trees are scattered throughout the property. In the last five years, new playground equipment was installed in the larger of the two areas, east of the shelter. Around 40 trees were planted along the south western boundary of the park.

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.
