• Foster Park to Tillman Road Trail: This trail will take you on a beautiful journey through south Fort Wayne and one of the area's top-rated and oldest parks, Foster Park. This course is mostly flat with only a few marks of elevation. The 8-mile trail starts at the north side of the park, with the shorter trail starting at the southern parking lot.
In addition to the blooming foliage and adjoining waterway, Foster Park offers drinking fountains, restroom facilities and a large playground for children. For those looking to do more than bike and sight-see, Foster Park also is home to baseball diamonds, tennis courts and a golf course.
Ride south after leaving Foster Park to arrive at Tillman Park, which also features softball diamonds, tennis courts and a children's playground. This trip can include a real sweet treat - a trip to Fort Wayne's own Atz's, at 211 E. Tillman Road, a local hometown diner. This trail is 6 to 8-miles round trip, depending on the course you take.
