Fort Wayne, Ind. Vehicular access to Foster Park will be limited on July 25 – 27 due to NIPSCO replacing the regulator station that is located near the park entrance. This is in conjunction with the City of Fort Wayne Tunnel Project. There will likely be only one lane to both enter and exit Foster Park at Old Mill Rd. Traffic control officers will be stationed by the entrance and signs will be posted, but we encourage all park visitors to be patient and careful when entering and exiting during work periods.
