What Time Does the Evansville Riverfront (and other popular Pokemon GO Locations) Close?
Yes, we know you are playing Pokemon GO and we know you are going to places you've never been in an attempt to catch them all. However, you may be wondering "What time do these places close?" Because I'm such a nice guy, I've compiled a list of the closing times of some the most popular Pokemon hunting locations!
Evansville Riverfront - Between 11pm and 12am
This is the most popular hunting location in Evansville. I've heard several reports of people being asked to leave the riverfront around 1am. While the riverfront never actually closes, you can be asked to leave. Also, the later you stay out the more you are likely to run into trouble, and nobody wants that.
Oak Hill Cemetery - Sunset
As morbid as it seems, Oak Hill Cemetary has been a hotbed for Pokemon hunting. However, like most places, it does have a closing time to discourage non-Pokemon trainers from causing trouble. The gates typically close around sunset, which during the summer, is typically around 8ish. Get out before then because nobody wants to spend the night in a cemetery for Pokemon.
Wesselman's Woods Nature Preserve- 5pm
The actual trails of Wesselman's Woods, along with the Nature Preserve, close at 5pm. They are also closed on Mondays. The rest of the park is open past that, but again, you probably don't want to be wandering around at 3am trying to find that Weedle that has been alluding you. (And yes, I know Weedle's aren't rare).
Newburgh Riverfront - Between 11pm and 12am
Pretty much the same rules apply as for the Evansville Riverfront. However, I did hear a great story of a police officer patrolling the Newburgh riverfront, stop, pull out his phone, and hunt Pokemon with the other people hanging out downtown. Keep things cool, Newburgh.
Also, for all you underage Pokemon players, some curfew rules do apply to you, and once school starts up again, I would expect them to be more heavily enforced. You can read them below. Be safe out there and catch 'em all!
