Halteman Park

CreatINg Places Campaign

After years of challenges, the private Halteman Swim Club closed its doors in 2017 and was sold shortly after during a county foreclosure tax sale. Since that time, the property has become blighted, dangerous, and an overall eyesore upon the neighboring community. The now-defunct pool is both a health and safety hazard for everyone.


Since that time, HVNA has worked to find a positive solution for the site. We have:

  • reorganized a formal neighborhood association

  • incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization with the IRS

  • convinced the City of Muncie to retain ownership of the property for valuable green space

  • held multiple meetings and orchestrated community visioning sessions with residents

  • partnered with the College of Architecture and Planning at Ball State University to re-envision the site

  • begun to fund raise.

All of these efforts are for the same end goal: to transform the site into a public park that all residents can be proud of.  We are pleased to announce that we are ready to put all of our planning into action, to revitalize the area with a new and improved public park!

We have been accepted into the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority's (IHCDA) CreatINg Places grant program. They will match every dollar we raise up to $30,000 to purchase and install quality playground equipment at the park. But we can't do this alone. We need support from friends, neighbors and community partners such as yourself.

If you are considering helping us reach our campaign goal, please check out our fundraising page on Patronicity for more information or to make a tax-deductible* donation.
