$1 million grant from the CenterPoint Energy Foundation to renovate park at 4th & Main

The City of Evansville Parks and Recreation Department today announced a $1 million grant from the CenterPoint Energy Foundation to renovate the park at Fourth and Main Street.

"We’re grateful for the CenterPoint Energy Foundation’s investment in Downtown Evansville," said Mayor Lloyd Winnecke. “This park will be a wonderful addition to our revitalization efforts, and will complement the upcoming development around the block.”

CenterPoint Energy Square will have room for a farmer’s market, outdoor dining, live music events, and community meetings. It will also will have a large green space that will be turned into an ice-skating rink during winter months. 

CenterPoint Energy President and CEO Dave Lesar said "Vibrant Main Streets and public spaces are vital to the economic growth of a region. We're committed to the growth and development of Evansville and to improve the quality of life for both current and future residents."

Construction on the park will be coordinated with the 4th & Sycamore and 5th & Main Street projects beginning early 2022.
