History:  Old Fort Park is Fort Wayne's oldest park.  The land for this park was purchased during the Civil War in 1863 for $800.  It features the original well that was used by the fort's occupants when it was dedicated to General Anthony Wayne on October 22, 1794.  It also has a marker that outlines a little history of the area.
