Speedway Parks

The Speedway Parks and Recreation Dept. is busy with the Winter Basketball League for this year, however they took the time to stop by the 2019 Bark for Life event for Relay For Life of Speedway and say high to our four-legged neighbors, participate in a costume contest, and support the efforts of local residents raising money for the American Cancer Society.

As the weather turns colder and it gets harder to “get of the the cold and play,” Speedway Parks & Recreation wants to encourage families to find some indoor fun. To help with this, Speedway Parks has collaborated with Sunshine Bowling Center - Indianapolis to offer a GREAT deal to families on December 8th, 2019. Stop by anytime that day and use the code “Speedway Parks Special” at the door to receive a special deal for: four bowlers with shoes, a one-topping 12-inch pizza, and 2 games of bowling. Special offer details can be found on the Facebook event: Speedway Parks Bowling Special at Sunshine Bowling Center
