The Battell Community Center is located at 904 N. Main St, Mishawaka. The Community Center recently went through a major renovation! Not only does it have a new and improved look, but the Mishawaka Parks & Recreation Department is offering many new and exciting programs for all ages and interests! Programs currently offered include 3-6 year old Sports Leagues, Zumba, Line Dancing, Yoga, 3-5 year old Summer Day Camp, and much more.



The Community Center offers an Auditorium that is available to rent for weddings performances, or meetings. A state of the art sound and lighting system, including a 15’x24’ projection screen, was recently installed to add ease and accessibility for renter’s use and enhance audience’s experience.  Throughout the year the Battell Center is host to movie nights & theatrical, seasonal, and musical performances open to the public.



Built in 1900, the east portion of the building functioned as Battell Elementary School with the west portion being added in 1920. The east end was eventually converted into apartments owned and operated by the Mishawaka Housing Authority. Purchasing the facility for $1.00 in 1982, the City of Mishawaka turned the west end into a community center which has become a thriving place for classes, recreation, theater, music and other art-related activities.
