Evansville is not what it used to be - it's better. In the last 5 to 10 years, the Evansville region has undergone extensive growth and revitalization and it's been driven by people just like you. People that wanted more to do on the weekends, people that wanted their cultures represented, and people that had big dreams and big ideas. The Evansville you once knew has been reimagined. 

Downtown Evansville

Downtown Evansville is continuously being redeveloped to offer spaces and amenities desired by millennials and young families. Main Street is once again a bustling hub for business and leisure. Historic buildings are occupied with modern restaurants and residential spaces. The streets are filled with sports fans and concert-goers. And on any given weekend you can find a festival, a block party, or a corner bar that's calling your name.

Greenspace

We're growing green! As our community changes, we've found new ways to incorporate outdoor attractions. Last years, volunteers built Mickey's Kingdom, a 21,000 sq. ft. playground for children of all abilities along the Ohio Riverfront. Our neighbors to the west in Mt. Vernon have a renovated riverfront that's perfect for community events. To the east, Newburgh's Friedman Park is 180-acres of southern Indiana charm. Plus, new trails are popping up all over the Evansville region, like the 37-mile USI-Burdette trail on Evansville's west side.
