This Association is INACTIVE at this time.
Timber Park’s mission is to promote and maintain a safe, clean, attractive, friendly neighborhood where residents are respectful and supportive of each other.
Timber Park neighborhood lies within the larger Evansville eastside area bounded between Lynch Road, Morgan Avenue, Pigeon Creek, and North Green River Road. Within this zone, the Timber Park perimeter is defined by the streets of Timber Park Drive and Park Ridge Drive on the west and north, Timber View Drive on the south, and North Stockwell Road on the east. The North Green River Road business district is located nearby.
Before Timber Park neighborhood became a residential subdivision, it was a family farm growing various crops and raising horses. Jagoe Brothers Construction bought the land and began building 275 residential homes with each section identified on distinctive freestanding brick columns.
With Pigeon Creek only a couple hundred feet away, a solution was essential to avoid flooding. Tons of bulldozed earth removed during the Lynch Road Project were used to raise the elevation along the new Park Ridge Drive (emphasis on the “Ridge”). The undeveloped grassland and wooded area between the creek and Timber Park was deeded to the City of Evansville and is part of Wesselman Woods.
In 2000, approximately 90 homeowners gathered in the nearby Good Shepherd School auditorium to measure interest for a neighborhood association – there was great support. The new Timber Park Neighborhood Association was quickly off and running. Soon thereafter, TPNA joined United Neighborhoods of Evansville which has become a highly valued long-term partner. Over the years, TPNA membership has usually varied from 50 to 80 annually.
TPNA has been the conduit between our residents and the City of Evansville. We have formed key relationships essential to resolving residents’ issues and problems. TPNA has succeeded in seeing that the neighborhood’s infrastructure is maintained by ensuring that utilities are functioning, street lights and power poles are maintained regularly, that streets are in good condition, streets are properly lined and striped, appropriate speed limits are enforced, and potholes filled quickly.
During our 20 years of serving the neighborhood, we have hosted block parties, picnics, outdoor events, carry-in dinners, annual holiday parties, annual yard sales, and delivered welcome packets to new neighbors. The Association holds monthly general meetings which sees 15-25 attendees on average. Members review and discuss TPNA business, receive police crime reports, learn of issues, and offer ideas and suggestions to improve the neighborhood. Plus, each month we invite guest speakers to make special presentations and participate in Q&A sessions afterwards. All of these efforts have been made to create a safe environment for all residents, protect our property values, improve the quality of life, and encourage friendship among neighbors living in Timber Park.
This neighborhood is in the East Sector.
