Fort Wayne's Trail Partners
There are several groups/agencies working on trail development besides the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department.
The New Haven-Adams Township Park & Recreation Department opened their Community Trails Project in New Haven along the Trier Creek (ditch) and the Maumee River in 2006. The section is 3 miles in length and part of the Rivergreenway. You can access this trail at the Boat Landing along North River Road and head East to New Haven or West to connect with the Fort Wayne Rivergreenway. For more information about this section, please call the New Haven/Adams Township Park & Recreation Department (749-2212).
For many years, the City of Fort Wayne partnered with 3 individual non-profit trail groups but in 2011, these 3 groups (Greenway Consortium, Northwest Allen Trails and Aboite New Trails) merged to form Fort Wayne Trails, Inc. This newly formed group is focused on promoting a healthy community by advocating, planning and fundraising for our rapidly growing trail network. Fort Wayne Trails has a new website (www.fwtrails.org). You can also find them on facebook and twitter as “Fort Wayne Trails”.
Fort Wayne is very fortunate to have strong trail building partnerships with both Allen County and the State of Indiana. It is through these partnerships that we are able to accomplish the many miles of trails within the network.
