Park Residence Hall opened its doors in 2007 and is centrally located on campus. With high-tech accommodations, Park is traditionally popular with returning students. Rich woodwork, fireplaces with clusters of couches and sitting options, and two-story lounges with open staircases create a classic and cozy environment in the residence hall.

Park Hall has two-story lounges, multiple study lounges, a recreational room, and a large fitness center. The hall is coed and has semi-private bathrooms (a bathroom shared by a small number of students), as well as a variety of room types. The building's location is only a short walk to most on-campus dining options, such as Woodworth Dining and the Atrium.

Over time, Park residents adopted the term and mascot, "Park Sharks" for the building's community. Residents can be found congregating around one Park's fireplace spaces or participating in events held in the Hargrave Multipurpose Room. Unique to the building displayed around the hall's front desk is artwork created by Ball State students and public art purchased specifically for Park Hall.
