The City of Henderson’s Parks & Recreation Department has set some dates for the closing of the city's water features.

The Riverfront Water Feature will close after Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 6. The city says that after the Riverfront Water Feature closes, some long-awaited repairs on piping can begin and get it back in shape for next season.

As for the East End Park Sprayground, the Parks Department will monitor the demand over the next two weeks before determining when to close it for the season.

The fountain in Central Park is also undergoing some repairs at the Alabama foundry where it was fabricated and will be reinstalled as soon as repairs are complete.

As for Atkinson Pool, that closed for the season back in August.

The city says its water features are expected to reopen in May 2022 just in time for the Memorial Day weekend.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
