Fishers named 2016 Playful City


The City of Fishers has been declared a 2016 Playful City USA Community by KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to promoting community play.

This year marks the eighth consecutive year Fishers has received the designation, which honors efforts throughout the past year to encourage playability throughout the community and comes shortly after the city’s release of its May through August Fun Guide.

“Our department knows the importance of play, and we’re committed to creating fun ways to do so year-round,” Fishers Parks and Recreation Director Tony Elliott stated. “We strive to offer diverse youth programming, creative community-wide events and facilities that encourage nature exploration and outdoor recreation.”

The new Fun Guide, with more information on opportunities for residents to play this summer, can be viewed by visiting the Parks and Recreation tab on

“One of our biggest assets as a community is the overall quality of life in Fishers,” Mayor Scott Fadness stated. “Opportunities for residents to play, regardless of age or activity, are vital for economic development, community building and continued vibrancy.”
