CiCo Park was founded under a cooperative agreement among the City of Manhattan, Riley County and Unified School District 383. Each of these bodies contributed to this regional park and recreation area.
Riley County operates Pottorf Hall, an indoor community center complete with restrooms and a kitchen. The county fairgrounds and arena are nearby, and are host to numerous horse shows, The Riley County Fair and one of the select rodeos in the area. The county also provides a public fitness course and a playground, both located in the southeast corner of the park.
Unified School District 383 manages Bishop Stadium and Track. Bishop Stadium seats 4,000 spectators, and the track is opened seasonally for public use.
The City of Manhattan operates the Lud Fiser Youth Sports Complex. This four-plex, with a satellite field for younger players, is one of the state's finest ball diamonds. Other municipal facilities include three surfaced tennis courts and a 25-meter swimming pool with an offset diving well, separate wading pool and bathhouse.
