Garvin Park is one of Evansville's oldest and popular parks. Purchased in 1915, for $50,000, the 80 acres provides a large lake, swimming pool, playground, tennis & basketball courts and is next to historic Bosse Field. Garvin Park is listed on the National Register of Historical Places and is a favorite for public gatherings. During the month of December, the local Easter Seals features the Ritzy Fantasy of Lights for the Christmas season.
