The Director of Headwaters Park Geoff Paddock spoke about the development of the park to the public and local leaders.Paddock took interest in the park in hopes of creating a destination park just like the one in Fort Wayne.“What we did in Fort Wayne was to address a couple of things, flood control was important having a downtown festival center, and ice skating rink and also have something that’s self-supporting,” says Paddock.Several attempts to use city money to fund the park have been rebuffed in the past. Creating a nonprofit to raise funds continues to work for Headwaters Park and may work for Evansville too.last_img
