Tree quoteArbor Day Tree Seedling

Third grade students in Fort Wayne will receive a tree seedling. 

Each year, Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation partners with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Friends of the Parks, and the School Children Flower and Vegetable Association to offer every Allen County third grader a tree seedling.  Seedlings will be delivered this year from April 22-24th.  Learn more about how to care for your seedling.

Dupont Road Construction/Salmon Park

As weather warms up, construction projects will begin again around the city, including the ongoing work on Dupont Road near Salomon Farm Park. The park entrance will remain open throughout construction, but please be aware of traffic changes near Salomon and plan accordingly.

Controlled Burn at Buckner Park

The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department has hired a contractor to conduct a controlled burn on the parking lot swales at Buckner Park this spring sometime between March 19 and April 19.

The parking lot swales at Buckner were designed to provide temporary detention and filtration of storm water as it comes off the parking lot.  This type of swale system helps to reduce and clean our storm water before it reaches our rivers.  These swales were originally planted with native grasses, sedges, and wildflowers. Learn more...
