The campus of Evansville Day School is rich in many unique qualities, including our beautifully redesigned atrium and recently updated soccer field and tennis courts. One of the most beautiful and often unknown features of the school grounds is the wooded trails located directly behind the school building. The 40 acre campus is teeming with walking trails, foliage of all varieties and lots of spots to pause and soak up all that nature has to offer. EDS is proud to have this outdoor learning forum unmatched in Evansville and the surrounding area.
Welcoming walkers to the trails is Tata. Tata is the Hungarian word for Grandfather and is named in honor of Gyongyossy Istvan, grandfather of Carson and Thomas Newton, current Day School students. Tata is carved from a tree stump and made possible through a generous donation by Dr. and Mrs. William Frank Newton, grandparents of Carson and Thomas.
In October of each year, the wooded trails come alive for Gnome Night, the Evansville Day School fall event that is fun for the whole family. Playing host to Gnome Night is Ted E. Dayschule, the EDS Gnome and all his Gnomies.
