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.
