While residents understand that it is hard work that makes the community prosperous, they encourage visitors to join them at the many recreational facilities within the community.

The Prospect League baseball team, the Dubois County Bombers, calls League Stadium at the Huntingburg City Park home.  A walking path intertwines itself among the many amenities at the City Park, baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, swimming pool, shelter houses, horseshoe pitches, and playground equipment.
