Over the past several years, Evansville's Riverfront has gone through some pretty positive changes. The latest project has a real big-city feel to it.
Have you seen the latest addition to Evansville's riverfront?
If I didn't already know that this amazing new structure was in Evansville, I wouldn't believe it. Not that we don't have nice things, but the riverfront isn't exactly known for that.
How cool are these swings? As soon as our friends with Downtown Evansville Indiana shared these photos on social media, followers compared Evansville to Cincinnati, Ohio.
Nicole Olewinski Ohh this are great! They have them downtown Cincinnati too!!Gregory Dale They have the swings in Cincinnati that swing over the river. They are nice.
Say Hello to the Cascade Sunrise Pump Station
This part of the water feature sounds like a relaxing waterfall. I wouldn't suggest trying to play in this though, it's not the spray park.
This photo gives you a better idea of where the Cascades Sunrise Pump Station is located. Over to the right, you can see Mickey's Kingdom.
Here's an areal look at Mickey's Kingdom Park before the second phase of the riverfront project was complete.
Mickey’s Kingdom was dedicated and opened on October 27, 2018

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years
I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
