(Batesville, Ind) - Batesville was announced as one of the 25 small towns that won T-Mobile's Hometown Grant. 

The $50,000 grant will go toward Batesville Main Street’s design and completion of Inspiration Park, formerly known as Bike Park. 

“We are extremely grateful to T-Mobile for this generous grant, which will allow our Inspiration Park outdoor gathering space to finally come to fruition after over a year of planning and a lot of teamwork between Main Street and the City of Batesville. This space will not only give visitors to our downtown district a safe outdoor space to gather, we hope it will serve as inspiration to our next generation of young visionary women. The green space, seating area, sculpture and shade will provide a great place to sit and learn the history of women who shaped the heart of our city,” says Tina Longstreth, Executive Director of Batesville Main Street. 

Inspiration Park will commemorate and honor the legacy of women that have shown vision and tenacity to become significant contributors to the Batesville Community. 

Mayor Mike Bettice says, “Thank you for the generous grant to Batesville Main Street to help shine a light on women's history. They have worked very hard to create a new park that will highlight the local women that have shaped our community. It will also offer a place where citizens and visitors can come together to work, live, and engage with one another.”
