An off-leash dog park is coming to Evansville, Indiana.

On Friday, Oct. 9, from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., local officials including Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will be present at the unveiling of the future home of Woodmere Dog Park.

In addition, an open house will be held from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. where area residents can enjoy music, merchandise, and Kanpai food truck.

Both events will be held at 3400 Lincoln Ave, Evansville, IN on the grounds of the State Hospital on Evansville’s East Side.

The mission of Woodmere Dog Park will be to provide and sustain a premier off-leash dog park in the Southwest Indiana region to enhance the quality of life in the city.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
