In this time of COVID-19 we are doing all we can to protect our customers and staff.  The above picture is from our 2021 Mother's Day Plant Sale that turned into a VIRTUAL sale with customers safely coming by to pick up their pre-packaged plants.  We are so thankful to the Fort Wayne community for embracing our Department as we move forward.  In fact, we have a  FWParks@Home link as well as a COVID-19 FAQ's link to keep you informed of how we are moving forward with the Pandemic. 


We are "Still here, Always Fun, Going Strong!"
