This is a quiet, low-density picnic spot where you're able to park close to your picnic tables. Became a park about a century ago after the last reunion of the Grand Army of the Republic (and even a few Confederates). It was a farm before...More

If there is no event going on, this area can get quite dangerous and is usually subject to a lot of criminal activity and vandalism at night. During the day, it's a standard park and lots of people run through it and walk around inside...More

Easy access to the Evansville Greenway walking trail. Several picnic areas & multiple play areas. Lake for fishing. Bosse field for watching a ball game and little league play. Go there often.
