Are you like me and can trip over your own shoestrings? If you are uncoordinated, unathletic and still desire to keep in shape, Fort Wayne offers some wonderful amenities.

Take a Hike

If you love to get a breath of fresh air at a leisurely to moderate pace, I suggest a stroll along a nature trail.

Within Allen County, there are more than a dozen parks and preserves which offer numerous pathways with easy to moderate fitness levels. Some of the favorite pathways of locals can be found at City of Fort Wayne's Parks and Recreations' Lindenwood Nature PreserveACRES Land Trusts' Dustin Preserve and Allen County Parks' Department Metea Park. Swinney Park

Play Footgolf

This simple sport is where players kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible. The cross between soccer and golf is for all ages and abilities - as long as you can kick a soccer ball, you can play. This fun way of exercise is found at McMillen Park.

Rent a Kayak

Individuals can rent a kayak by the hour or day at Fort Wayne Outfitters & Bike Rental (1004 Cass Street just off Wells Street). Visitors can row their kayak at a leisurely pace up and down three rivers, and see Fort Wayne from a different point of view.


Toss a Frisbee

What better way to hone your throwing skills and keep your figure than Frisbee golf! Whether you play by yourself, a partner or a group of friends, you can play this game that combines Frisbee throwing and golf. Frisbee golf courses can be found in Fort Wayne at Swinney ParkShoaff Park, and Tillman Park, and in New Haven at Moser Park.

If you just wish to enjoy the outdoors, take a seat at one of the benches along the rivergreenway or in Headwaters park!
