Franklin Street Raising Money for New Community Park to be Called ‘Stop Light City’
There is often talk from folks who visit Owensboro about how nice their community park is along the riverfront. Franklin Street Association wants to build a community park of our own here in Evansville, but they need the community's help.
Wouldn't it be cool if Evansville had a really nice community park that everyone could enjoy? I'm talking state of the art, you'll want to kick your kids off to take a turn, cool? The Franklin Street Association has launched a Go-Fund-Me to bring a state of the art community park to Franklin Street. The project, called Stop Light City, will cost an estimated $4 million and the City of Evansville & the Parks Department have given their approval. Now the Franklin Street Association has to raise some money. They've applied for a grant to help offset the cost of construction, but they are hoping the community will come together to raise the other $250,000. You can make a donation by visiting the Stop Light City Go Fund Me.
