Indian Village Park
Size in acres: 10
The riverbank and park strip tracts were transferred to the city in 1930. In 1929 the Board built a footbridge between Foster Park and land to be known as Indian Village Park.
The site was once the home of the Allen County Orphan’s Home and one of the brick buildings may be associated with that endeavor.
Sears Roebuck and Company offered to build the pavilion that is located in Indian Village Park for the city in the early 1940's with the understanding that the city would assume control and maintenance of the building after construction. Today that pavilion is known as Sears Pavilion. For a period of time, part of the pavilion was rented as an apartment.
