Elkhart is made for individuals and families who love outdoor activities. A phenomenal system of city and county parks and comprehensive recreation programs satisfies every desire for sports and recreation. The city of Elkhart has 32 parks with a total of about 300 acres, many situated along rivers where fishing is a popular pastime. Several of these parks are connected by trails for easy walking or biking between locations.
Youngsters, and the young at heart, can speed down a 60 foot water slide at one of Elkhart's parks. There are backboards for one-on-one basketball, plus numerous ball fields where organized softball and baseball teams meet for league play. Facilities for soccer, tennis, volleyball and racquetball are used for leisurely play as well as spirited competition.
Two skateboard parks offer facilities for x-treme sports. Soon, one park will boast new water features for kids who want to splash and play during a hot day.
On warm summer evenings, folks gather in family groups around picnic tables, or spread their blankets on the grass to enjoy a free community band concert.
