Long Description:
This park was named after two doctors, Dr. Lawson Tate and Dr. H.C Evans.

Each year after the town's annual Christmas Parade the town's people are welcomed to the Lighting In The Park, that takes place downtown at Tate Evans Park. Attendees are able to enjoy hot cider and join in the singing of carols as several festively decorated Christmas trees are lit.

This park has multiple playground areas, lots of equipment, pavilions and walking trail. There is a footbridge and even a small dog play area. There is something for everyone here.
