The Evan’s Archery Range is named in honor of Richard “Dick” B. Evans. Mr. Evans was a longtime supporter of the Park District and loved the outdoors. His love of hunting and archery was unparalleled. He donated the funds to construct the Archery Range in 2016, shortly before passing away. His gift has given the citizens of Allen County, especially archers, a place to practice and hone their skill.
The range was constructed during the summer of 2016. The talented maintenance staff of the Park District constructed the entirety of the range, in house. It took approximately three months to construct and will remain a destination for archers from around the county and region.
The range consists of three separate courses. The first course consists of an elevated platform with targets at 10, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40 yards respectively. The second course is a beginner course and has targets ranging from 5, 10, 15, and 20 yards. Lastly, a professional course is located on the north end of the complex with targets ranging from 25, 35, 45, 50, and 60 yards.
The use of field points is permitted. The use of broadheads is strictly prohibited and will be enforced by Ranger personnel. The range is open daily from dawn to dusk and users are asked to sign-in when visiting the range.
