The City of Fishers has announced plans to build a 105,000-square-foot on Hoosier Road near 121st Street.
The new community center was designed based on input from residents. In 2021, a steering committee chaired by Fishers City Councilor Todd Zimmerman was formed to identify and prioritize community needs and how they could be served by an indoor facility. Nearly 3,500 residents completed a survey to share the amenities they most desired in this facility. Top items like a dog park, indoor playground, track, and aquatics facility were included in the design.
- The center will offer both memberships and day passes, with discounts for Fishers residents. It will also feature free amenities accessible to both residents and non-residents, including a large indoor playground, indoor track for walking and running, and café.
- The Center is estimated to cost $60 million and will be paid for through city-issued bonds following a build-operate-transfer agreement that is slated to end in 2026. City leadership does not anticipate the Fishers City Tax rate to increase as a result of financing this project.
- The project resolution will be presented to the Fishers Finance Committee on June 14 and the Fishers City Council on June 19 for approval.
- The project is anticipated to break ground this fall and open in spring 2025.
