Leonard Leota Park

The covered footbridge crosses Allen Creek in the park.  It's a favorite place for pictures.

Lake Leota is a handy teaching site for the local school's kayaking class!
The duck hutch can be found along Allen Creek, which meanders through Leonard Leota Park in Evansville.  The duck hutch and other 1930s-era stone structures contributed to the park's designation on the National Register of Historic Places.

This beloved local jewel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In the heart of the park is Lake Leota, a 40-acre body of water great for canoeing, fishing and even log rolling. In addition there are five picnic pavilions, a public outdoor swimming pool, baseball and softball diamonds, tennis courts, four playgrounds, skate park, footbridge and hiking areas. At the main entrance to the park is the historic Baker Office Building, now a museum with rotating exhibits about local history.  Next to the museum is a tiny tourist cabin, a restored classic treasure dating from the 1930s. A disc golf course on the grounds has been the site of successful sanctioned tournaments.
