Safe Trails are Happy Trails.

Mid-Block Crossings can be confusing for everyone.  Who has the right of way? When should cars stop? When can pedestrians cross?

Watch this video to learn more about the proper way to navigate crossing in the middle of a street, rather than at an intersection!

 When traveling on city streets, bicycles have the same duties and rights as motorists.  Know and practice the rules of the road. 

 


Who is using the Trails?

Infrared counters are positioned throughout the Fort Wayne Regional Trails Network to help staff understand how residents are using the trail system. Find out how many trail users we counted in 2021, plus learn more about which trails were used the most frequently!

About the Rivergreenway

St Marys Foster Walkers Family, Foster Park, Rivergreenway, Fort Wayne Trails

The Rivergreenway Trail is a 25 mile long linear park in Fort Wayne and New Haven, Indiana. The trail is along the banks of the St. Marys, St. Joseph and Maumee Rivers. Much of the Rivergreenway has been funded by the State of Indiana and the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund. The Rivergreenway provides a great opportunity for recreation, fitness and conservation, as well as providing an alternative transportation network safely connecting the community.

A linear park such as the Rivergreenway is a long, narrow park with limited access that is ideal for activities such as bicycling, hiking, nature study, jogging, rollerblading or just going for a leisurely walk. The Rivergreenway offers natural vistas and scenic overlooks within an urban environment. It creates a synergism between country and urban settings that affords users the opportunity to enjoy the best of both. Additionally, it creates a natural overflow against the invasion of high water which helps mitigate the ravages of flooding.

The Rivergreenway is owned and maintained by the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department, the City of Fort Wayne Public Works Department, and the New Haven/Adams Township Parks & Recreation Department.

The Rivergreenway is open from 6 am -11 pm daily for your enjoyment.

If there are comments, questions, or concerns about any section of the Rivergreenway, please contact the Greenways Manager at (260) 427-6002.
