Shoaff Park 

Size in acres: 184.5

Since 1955

Shoaff Park is located at 6401 St. Joe Rd., Fort Wayne. For more detailed location information, check out the General Park Map, or Park Map  

History: Nearly all of Shoaff Park's land was purchased in 1955 with a generous donation by Mr. and Mrs. Fred B. Shoaff.  The Conklin Pavilion was a gift from Mrs. Ella Conklin left to Fort Wayne's residents as part of her last will and testament.  Though Shoaff's most distinguishing feature is the natural beauty of its wooden areas, it is also distinguished by the fact that is offers the most amenities of any park.
