Mary Gibbard Park Ribbon Cutting

After more than a year of planning and construction Mishawaka’s Mary Gibbard Park has been re-opened to the public. New to the park is a BMX Bike Park and Splash Pad complete with a large tipping bucket emblazoned with a Lion head.

The Lion is the mascot of nearby LaSalle Elementary School. Students were asked to help design their neighborhood park and some of their ideas are displayed for all to see the inspiration that went into the final design.

Featured in the park are a Little Library donated by the Mishawaka Education Foundation and designed / built by Mishawaka High School students; the Born Learning Trail, donated by United Way of St. Joseph County; Mary Gibbard Pavilion; inclusive play equipment, and a BMX Bike Park.
