Outdoor Recreation Complex

Following ten years of planning, fund-raising and construction, the Kendallville Park and Recreation Department opened a new, 89 acre facility for outdoor sports and special events in August 2006. Phase one of the development features four diamonds, three soccer fields, basketball, shuffleboard courts and parking for over 700 cars. Athletic fields are irrigated and the diamonds are lighted to professional standards. Concessions and restroom facilities are fully functional. Youth and adult softball, youth baseball and soccer is played at this location, 524 South Allen Chapel Road. The complex is located adjacent to Bixler Lake Park and Campground which can be accessed by a walking trail. In addition to local and league play, the facility hosts weekend tournaments and events throughout the year.
