“Beautifully landscaped WPA Era Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Lake Leota Park is Evansville's little gem. It is a beautiful park with many large, mature trees creating a shaded understory. Allen creek runs through the park, which also includes Lake Leota. The lake and creek are great places for kids to catch fish and play in the water - as kids need to do.

The park comes to life during the 4-day 4th of July festival celebration each year. During this annual event, the park becomes a great venue for music, games and food.

Just an excellent small town park with a lake, spillway, toys for the kids, a pool and plenty of shade and picnic areas for relaxing.

“This lake and park is back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Beautiful old park. The lake has been dredged out and now can be called a lake again. The Canadian geese still like it, but they don't seem to be as thick as years past, Which is good.
Nice shaded grassy areas, picnic area, playground. A new aluminum pier if you like to fish. Great recreation area with soccer field, baseball diamond. Just a fun place to visit, walk, and enjoy the outdoors. Great place to take your young ones to let them run.
After spending the day outside, the Rock N Rollz sandwich shop or the Nite Owl bar/restaurant are great places to replenish the calories you have burned off.

“somtimes it's a lake sometimes not”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Softball is fun on summer nights, 4th of July is good but redundant from year to year. The lake has been dredged and emptied, and still looks like a cess pool. Public pool is alright, interesting little bridges over the creek. Could be great if it was managed right.
