Is the biggest park in Floyd County, with 104.5 acres, people come from all over Floyd County (and some out of county) to enjoy.

In addition to the water activities, there are 5 covered shelters with tables, 4 playground areas, 3 restroom facilities, 6 basketball goals, 11 tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, 6 horseshoe pits, and a 1.25 mile trail for walking, jogging, or biking.

DON'T MISS "GO FishIN in the City" on June 7th!

Indiana DNR is intensively stocking Kiwanis Lake with catchable size channel catfish and other fish during the year to lead up to the Go FishIN in the City event.

The Kiwanis Lake at Sam Peden Community Park is part of the Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources “Go FishIN in the City" Program. Go FishIN in the City is Indiana DNR’s new urban fishing program. This program provides great shore fishing opportunities for Hoosiers that live in heavily populated urban areas. With the help of local partners, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources will intensively stock catchable size channel catfish throughout the year in small city lakes. 

Kiwanis Lake within Sam Peden Community Park will celebrate "Go FishIN in the City" on June 7th 2014 from 8:00am - 2:00pm. Mark it down on your calendar for an day of fun at Community Park. Anglers age 18 and older need a fishing license. Anglers age 17 and younger do not need a fishing license.
