If you encounter any downed trees or safety concerns, please call or email the Greenways Dept at (260)427-6228 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  

Please be aware, during or following a rainfall, portions of the trail network may be muddy and/or slippery. Please slow down and use caution, especially on boardwalks.  Always use caution whenever you encounter a wet section of trail.  During the winter months, be mindful of the potential for ice. In the instance of accumulating snowfall, trails are cleared when 3 or more inches are recorded.

 

Trail Closures and Detours:

 

Trail Tree Work: Tree work is slated to begin along the trail system on 2/6/23. Weather permitting, work will begin on the north end of the Pufferbelly Trail and work south over the coming days. Other trails will be affected at later dates - this post will be updated as different trails are affected. Trail users can expect intermittent delays and, at some times, closures of small sections. Trail users should use caution and respect posted signage and barricades to ensure safety. 

 

Homestead Rd. Trail: Utility work is being carried out along the Homestead Rd.Trail between Covington Rd. and Aboite Center Rd. Please use caution in the area. 

 

Rivergreenway Pathways:

  • Beginning January 16th, 2023, the foot bridge separating Headwaters Park and the Old Fort will be closed due to a riverbank restoration project. The estimated reopening is late spring. Please follow the detour in place (map below) to navigate around this closure. 
  • The pedestrian bridge just South of Lawton Park will close beginning 11/23/22 for reconstruction. A posted detour is in place. Please note that this will be a long-term closure. While this bridge is part of the St.Marys Pathway, its location is important to the connection of all Rivergreenway Pathways, meaning that many Rivergreenway trail users may be impacted. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • A posted detour is available for both of the above closures. View the map here

 

Spy Run Bridge:The below-grade crossing at Spy Run is closed for construction. The east sidewalk has been opened to allow for trail users to pass. Please note that the sidewalk is not at full width at this time. Trail users should cross at the intersection of Lafayette St & Superior St. A utilities project has closed a section of sidewalk that serves as a trail connection on the east side of Lafayette St. near Three Rivers Apartments. Trail users should utilize the west sidewalk to navigate around the closure.

 

Water Filtration Plant: A damaged utility has cause the placement of a pump on the trail just west of the water filtration plant. The trail narrows significantly as users pass through the area. The trail remains open. Please use caution. 

 

Landin Road Trail: A section of the Landin Road Trail (east side) is closed for construction north of North River Road. Please utilize the trail on the west side to bypass the area. Contact New Haven Parks (260-749-2212) with questions. 

 

Dupont Road Trail: Repairs are being made to a small section of trail just west of Salomon Farm. As work continues, there may be periods of impassability. Trail users are encouraged to navigate around the closure if possible or utilize the sidewalk on the North side of the street.

For specific questions about closures, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 427-6228. 

 

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 26-mile linear park in Fort Wayne and New Haven, Indiana. The system runs 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 system 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.
