FREE Dog Park with Agility Equipment, Benches, and More!

Plans for the free small-scale dog park in Downtown Evansville were announced in March. Everything appears to be on schedule and the Earthborn Holistic Dog Park will open to the public on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

Future-Proofed Fun for Years to Come

While our furry friends might not appreciate the finer details of city planning, here's a cool fact for my fellow pet parents: The land for the park is leased by the EID from the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU). EWSU is a champion for improving our stormwater systems, and they have BIG plans for the park's underground area – a large water holding tank is expected to be installed by around 2037. This means that even in the future, our pups will have a place to play while the city keeps improving its infrastructure.
