Salomon Farm Park
817 W. Dupont Rd.
Hours: Daily, 6:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m.

Salomon Farm Park was launched in 1996 through the generous donation of land by Chris Salomon.  Mr. Salomon (now deceased), his daughter Lynn, and Salomon's late wife Maxine had discussed and conceived, perhaps twenty years earlier, the potential of their beautiful landmark farm becoming a historic working farm and park for others to experience.  With the assistance and grateful acceptance of the Fort Wayne Board of Park Commissioners and the Parks and Recreation Department, the Salomon family wishes have come true.  Construction on the Learning Center began in 2000 and was completed in 2001. Salomon Farm Camp was introduced in the summer of 2002 and sold out in its first year.

The period selected for the operating theme for Salomon Park is the 1930s. This era is a very significant watershed in farm life, as the 1930s represent a lengthy era of similar aspects of agriculture and domestic life. It also is somewhat unique to the "museum" genre as an era with great personal interest to older Americans as well as great opportunities for appeal, education, entertainment, and recreation for younger visitors.

Salomon Farm Park offers many exciting programs and classes for adults and children related to nature.
Check out the upcoming events & programs tab for the seasonal list.

Salomon Farm Park is a true historic gem and a perfect location for walking, picnics, fishing and much more. The Salomon family  established the farm in 1871 and gifted it to the city in 1995 to protect it from development. The 1.8 mile fully paved trail that surrounds the park is used more than any trail in Fort Wayne! Please park in the first gravel parking lot upon entering the park. For more information, call 427-6005.
