“With the resources available, they do a good job with this park”-Muncie Community Member
McCulloch Park, Muncie’s largest community park, is located in the southwest corner of the Whitely Neighborhood, adjacent to the Minnetrista, McKinley, and East Central Neighborhoods. McCulloch Park serves the entire community of Muncie. Access to McCulloch Park is available from adjacent bus routes along Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., or from a short walk from routes along Elm St. McCulloch Park is also accessible from White River Greenway (running along the southern boundary of the park) and Cardinal Greenway, with the McCulloch Trailhead located just west of the park. Parking lots are available in multiple locations throughout the park, which include bike racks at a couple locations. McCulloch Park Dr. meanders through the park running north-south. The park is split in half by Highland Ave., running east-west. The park has amenities such as two basketball courts, a large disc-golf course, open green-space with walking trails, two playground structures along with a restroom facility, a soapbox derby racing hill, and even a historical baseball field that has once been used for Minor and Major league games.
