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, his daughter Lynn, and Salomon's 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 Wolf Family 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, leading to the 4,000 square foot expansion of the Wolf Family Learning Center in 2018.  Other recent changes at Salomon Farm Park include the Homestead dedication in 2019 and the Salomon Farm Covered Bridge in 2020.

Salomon Farm Park is a true historic gem and a perfect location for walking, biking, bird watching, photography and much more.  The Salomon's established the farm in 1871, but visitors will notice the endearing 1930's theme.  Stop by for a visit to admire historic buildings, relax at the wetlands, or enjoy our fully paved 1.8 mile trail around the property.  Follow us on Facebook for news, updates, and announcements!    If you have additional questions, feel free to e-mail us at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.
