How big is 5 acres? A football field is only 1.32 acres. A typical city block is 2.5 acres. Five acres is 217,800 square feet. If a typical house is 2500 square feet, then 5 acres is over 87 houses. Blown away by my mad math skilz? Be even more blown away by today’s guest. What used to be a 5 acre RCA storage facility building that sat empty for 20 years, now provides a safe place to play for the whole community. Welcome to The Warehouse! This enormous building, adjacent to Switchyard Park, houses a sports complex and offers access to the largest indoor BMX and skateboard park in the Midwest, art classes for all ages and plenty of play space. Best of all- it’s completely free! You’ve probably been inside for the Bloomington Home Show, or a craft/art show. But there’s a lot more going on at The Warehouse. Listen to our conversation with Development Director, Merry Pridemore, as we learn all about what the Warehouse has to offer and how you can get involved!
