Fundraising for the project has been underway for some time now. However, recently, according to Evansville 411 News, a local animal-loving community leader with a giving spirit made a generous donation.

When and Where

Once completed, Woodmere Dog Park will be next to the Indiana State Hospital grounds, located off Lincoln Avenue on Evansville's east side. The park will be an open-range green space spread over three acres. Evansville 411 says the plan is for construction to begin next year.

The Woodmere Dog Park hopes to start construction in 2023, which will be located on the east side of Evansville adjacent to the State Hospital Grounds. The new dog park facility will be a 3 acre complex that will provide a safe and convivial opportunity for a free-range activity for dogs and their owners.
