Everyone knows about the Field of Dreams in Iowa because it became a hit movie. How many of you know about the Indiana Field of Dreams located in Shelbyville?
In 1980 Jim Sleeth, Sr., decided he wanted to turn a tract of land he owned near Shelbyville into a Field of Dreams for his son and other youth in the area. He turned a corn field into 2 softball diamonds. These 2 fields are the hub of what is now Blue River Park.
In 2010 the city of Shelbyville Park Board got involved with this recreational area. Today there are more softball diamonds, soccer fields, and a walking trail. Also, in this same area is a cross country course. If you are looking for this park, it is located near the Wal-Mart and partly visible from the interstate.
