Washington Park in Muncie

Located in the southwestern portion of the East Central Neighborhood, on the edge of the Emily Kimbrough Historical District, Washington Park takes up half of a city block. It is bounded by Adams St. to the north, Pershing Dr. to the east, Charles St. to the south, and a daycare center to the west. The only available parking is along the streets. The park has sidewalks along the perimeter with additional sidewalks that are lined with trees that diagonally dissect the park into 3 primary areas and a secondary area acting as a buffer to the daycare center. Elegant park furniture is placed throughout the park, including benches, trashcans, and light poles. The northern portion of the park offers playground equipment. Areas to the east and south are mounded providing interest and open areas for picnics or spontaneous play.
