The community center in Fishers will have paid memberships



Fishers, Indiana – The city of Fishers made plans to erect a $60 million community center with a variety of features that would require paid membership public on Tuesday.

The Fishers Community Center, with its 105,000 square feet of entertainment space, was created with locals in mind. The city came up with an inclusive design that is sure to please everyone after reviewing approximately 3,500 completed surveys from locals revealing what they most wished in this facility.

The Johnson Farms neighborhood off of Hoosier Road, close to 121st Street, will house the Fishers Community Center.

While some amenities will be free and accessible to both residents and non-residents, the facility will provide memberships and day passes with discounts for Fishers residents.

• A 5,300-square-foot indoor playground.
• Aquatics facility with a lap pool and zero-depth entry warm water pool with a waterslide and play features.
• An 18,600-square-foot gymnasium featuring three basketball courts, which can also be converted into volleyball and pickleball courts.
• Clinical rooms and offices for the Fishers Health Department.
• Child care facility.
• Multipurpose rooms.
• Public gathering spaces.
• A café.

Additionally, there will be a second floor with a sizable fitness and wellness center, a spin studio, group training spaces, and an indoor jogging and walking track. Future phases will include a roof deck for outdoor activities and events.

The facility plans now include accessibility elements like adult companion rooms with adult change tables, a zero-depth entry pool, a water wheelchair, and accessible exercise equipment. There will also be access to Outside the Box’s adult program, which supports persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Both residents and non-residents will be able to use the center’s indoor track, indoor playground, and café for no cost. The majority of the center’s features will be accessible only through day passes and paid memberships, which are open to both residents and non-residents. Prices are still to be decided.

A build-operate-transfer arrangement that is scheduled to expire in 2026 will be followed by city-issued bonds to pay for the center. The financing of this project is not expected to result in an increase in the city’s tax rate, according to local officials.

According to the city, the Fishers Finance Committee will consider the project resolution on Wednesday, and the Fishers City Council will consider it on Monday. The construction is scheduled to start this fall and finish in the spring of 2025.
