Parks

Fortville has two town parks: Memorial Park and Landmark Park.
Overall they are well maintained by the Parks Department and a source of much community pride and involvement.

Jackson Ditch flows through Fortville Memorial Park, just south of the
paved entry road into the park. Stottlemeyer Ditch forms the north
boundary of Fortville Memorial Park. It is these ditches/creeks and the
adjacent banks and vegetation, which create the natural setting of this
park.

Landmark Park – 3.2 Acres
This park is in a more urban setting, as it is centrally located one-half
block from the main street of town. It has an area adjacent to the
Methodist Church for passive recreation with paved walks through a
