McMillen Park

Since 1937

McMillen Park is located at 3900 Hessen Cassel and Oxford, Fort Wayne. For more detailed location information, check out the General Park Map or McMillen Park Map

Thanks to a generous donation by former Central Soya Chief Dale W. McMillen, the park that bears his name became a permanent resident of Fort Wayne in 1937. Though the park no longer hosts the city's Fourth of July fireworks show or the Twelfth Night Burning of the Greens (a gathering to dispose of holiday evergreens by bonfire), it still hosts many superb amenities.

The McMillen Park Community Center is open daily.  Check out the link for additional information on all of the programs offered at this site!
