Our administrative office will remain open with new hours of 8 am till 4 pm Monday through Friday to assist citizens by phone, email or internet. The lobby and reception area will be closed until April 6th. All outdoor parks will remain open at this time but the public should be aware of the risks of using public playground equipment, basketball and tennis courts and shelter houses for large gatherings in places where others have met. All restrooms are closed. All organized sporting events, special events, shelter rentals, fundraising events and other functions planned by the department or others will be canceled until April 6th.
 
These actions are taken very seriously from the latest information that we have at this time. We are taking these precautions so we can protect the citizens of Floyd County and our staff until such a time we can all enjoy our beautiful park system safely.

KHMP - Award Winning Park

 

We are proud to announce that Kevin Hammersmith Memorial Park (KHMP) is already receiving recognition as one of the best parks in the State of Indiana. At the Indiana Park and Recreation Association (IPRA) Conference which was held mid-February, KHMP was awarded The Exceptional Park Design Award for 2019!

One of the major features of KHMP is Phillips Pavillion, a state-of-the-art, covered outdoor basketball facility with a regulation-sized high school court, was named in recognition of Elliott and the late Sue Phillips for their gift to Floyd County Parks and Recreation. Due to his generous donation, Elliott Phillips also won an award at the IPRA Conference. Mr. Phillips was awarded The Distinguished Citizen Award for 2019! We would again like to thank Elliott for his donation and passion of youth/community development as Phillips Pavillion has begun and will continue to be a major attraction for Floyd County Parks and Southern Indiana.

The Indiana Park and Recreation Association has 15 different award winning categories. It is an honor that we were recognized for 2 out of 15 awards for 2019. These awards would not have been attainable without the support of the Floyd County Commissioners, Floyd County Council, The Parks Board, the citizens, and the hard work of the parks staff.
