Due to the expansion and development along HWY 26 west of campus, many of the playfields used by RecWell will no longer be available. To offset the loss of these fields, RecWell is building new fields at the north east intersection of McCormick Road and Cherry Lane. This project is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2017. This site will provide lighted sport club space for men’s and women’s rugby, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s ultimate, cricket, and many other recreational programs. These will be high quality fields with in-ground drainage and irrigation. This is a vital field project to serve the outdoor recreational needs of thousands of students. Research shows that students who participate in activities like these are more likely to be successful and satisfied with their college experience.
Purdue Recreation and Wellness is committed to enhance the quality of life at Purdue through engagement in recreation which fosters an appreciation for a healthy lifestyle and promotes lifelong learning.
Pickett Memorial Park is named for the late Dean Pickett, a student at Purdue. He died in July 1969 in Yosemite National Park when a ledge he was standing on gave way. His parents, Robert and Margaret Pickett, established the park in 1971 to memorialize their son and his great love of the outdoors.
