Update: As of 2017, The Window Garden Cafe and Tanglewood Berry Farm are no longer in operation.

Summer fun in the Fort is easy to find. The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, Science Central, and Fort Wayne TinCaps are well known.

Here are some other great places that you may not be quite as familiar with, but are sure to provide good times. TinCaps ballgames also have special events!

Give the grandkiddos a view of the city like no other. Have breakfast or lunch Monday through Friday at the Window Garden Cafe on the 13th floor of the One Summit Square building downtown. As the song goes, “On a clear day you can see forever.”  

You and the little grands (beginning with age 2) can have a blast via Tanglewood Berry Farm’s Little Sprouts program. Saturday morning activities include scavenger hunts, hikes, fresh produce picking, and visiting with the animals.

Share some delicious beverages and food at Java Mama, and check out their variety of classes (art, gymnastics, crafts) for kids up to age 15. There's even an indoor play area.

Of course you can always walk and bike Fort Wayne’s fantastic trail system too. Take a look at the maps to see how the paved paths cross the entire county. There’s bound to be a trailhead near you. The Fort’s abundance of parks include activities like playgrounds, splash pads, and athletic fields and courts. There’s something for everyone. Visit Kreager Park for Indiana’s first boundless playground, accessible for children of all abilities. 

And summer fun in the Fort can be topped off by enjoying the delicious food and interesting activities offered at the Johnny Appleseed Festival!

Have a grand time!
