The Amphitheatre in Ellis Park in Danville Indiana
A shelter and playground at Ellis Park in Danville, IndianaThe 49 acres of Ellis Park were set aside in 1913, but the area wasn't a park back then. Instead, the land was used to protect the town's water supply, and it wasn't turned into Ellis Park until 1971. What started as simple open space to the north of downtown Danville was rapidly developed into a family gathering place, replete with playgrounds, shelter houses, and more. The park is a haven for Danville sports: it features the only public clay tennis courts in Indiana, baseball and softball fields, a football field (home of the Danville Junior Football League), and basketball courts for the most Hoosier of all sports. Ellis Park used to have a skate park, but it was closed down in 2009.
