Evansville’s skatepark project receives donation, hopes to break ground this year


EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) Evansville’s riverfront is already a popular spot for outdoor activities, from Mickey’s Kingdom to Dress Plaza and the Pigeon Creek Greenway, and now a skatepark could be the newest addition to the riverfront.

The Skatepark Project has awarded Evansville’s Sunset Skatepark Project $10,000 to go towards the completion of a free, accessible public concrete skatepark on the riverfront within the Promise Zone.

This project will connect the current Micky’s Kingdom Playground to the new EWSU Pump Station Project – right along the Greenway. This park will be a much-needed upgrade to replace Evansville’s current Lamasco Skatepark that opened in 2001.

Around $13,000 has already been raised for Sunset Skatepark, and they are continuing to raise funds with the hope of breaking ground this year. They hope to raise $500,000.
