Hamilton Park 

Size in acres: 16.5

Since 1930
Hamilton Park is located at Spring Street and Cherokee Road. For more detailed location information, check out the General Park Map or Hamilton Park Map

History: In 1930, 16.5 acres was acquired by purchase and donation.  The park was called Hamilton Park after the Hamilton Family that had a bank in early Fort Wayne history.  In 2000 Hamilton Park was redesigned by City Utilities to act as a water retention basin.  In exchange, the park received major improvements including a new baseball diamond, new playground equipment, and a paved trail around the perimeter of the park.
