Created By: Ruthmere


Island Park was originally owned by Havilah Beardsley and was deeded to the City for a park in 1887 by the children of Havilah and Rachel Beardsley. The folklore legend of the shape of the island resembling an elks heart has led to one of the many origin stories for the Citys name of Elkhart. Island Park serves as a host site for summer concerts and festivals. The History Hike for Fitness is a patnership between Ruthmere, Beacon Health System, and the Elkhart City Parks.
