Sunrise Park

Sunrise Park, one of Evansville’s most popular, is located near downtown and the riverfront. It serves as home to Kid’s Kingdom playground. It is also at the southern end of the Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage, making it a wonderful place to begin a walk or bike ride.

SWIMGA cares for two of the gardens in the park. One is a 120 foot long bed of perennials and annuals that attract butterflies, honey bees, and birds. The other is a round bed that features a magnificent white crepe myrtle among other plantings. Each summer we also provide educational programs for the Vanderburgh County School System and Evansville Christian School.
