Stop Light City - We Wanna Play!

The Franklin Street Events Association has been working towards an amazing new playground for our community and just recently got approvals from the City of Evansville and the parks department to move forward on fundraising for our vision - Stop Light City. 

Your donation will help us in our effort to secure funding for this $4 million state of the art community park that will be located on two acres between Franklin Street and the Lloyd Expressway.  Depending on the size of donations, they will be used to fund one of the many individual attractions within the park.  Stop Light City will have a transportation theme, celebrating Evansville's rich history and contributions to everything from aviation to ship building.

We, at the Franklin Street Events Association, believe that it is time to have a destination park in Evansville and now is the time to make it happen.  Not only will Stop Light City provide a state or the art park for the children of our area to play, imagine and grow, but it will also attract families from neighboring communities.

Every person, every donation will make a difference. Our community deserves an amazing place for our children and we need your help to make this happen.
