Area: 90 Acres. Shanklin is by far the City’s largest park, and it lies between the Elkhart River and Millrace Canal at the heart of the community. Since its development in 1958, Shanklin Park has become the “hub” of recreational activity in Goshen. Facilities include lighted baseball / softball diamonds, a canoe launch for the Elkhart River, community-built Tommy's Kids Castle, Kiwanis Pavilion and a playground. It is also the location of both Shanklin Pool and Schrock Pavilion, a large rentable enclosed pavilion where many Park special events and programs are held. Shanklin Park also boasts significant passive opportunities, including native grasses and wildflowers, a long forested wetland and a perennial garden that delights passers-by.
