Mishawaka maintains 26 public parks, each with its own unique natural attributes. For boating enthusiasts, there are four parks with boat launches on the St. Joseph River. Water skiers and sailors can indulge in their pastimes in the river's east section. Incidentally, this is one of the best rivers in the state for fishing. Smallmouth bass, steelhead trout, coho salmon, chinook salmon and walleye are plentiful in their seasons.

Mishawaka parks also boast an excellent swimming pool at Merrifield Park, 5 "splashpads" and accommodations for tennis and various field sports. "Disc golf" is another popular park sport (available at Wilson Park). For more traditional golfers the 18-hole Eberhart-Petro Municipal Golf Course offers plenty of challenges. In the winter, skaters can show off their skills on the Ice Rink at Merrifield Park or thrill to the lighted tubing runs at Wilson Park.
