Calm Water Sensory Tent


Riverfront Fort Wayne and Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation are proud to offer the first-of-its-kind therapeutic mobile sensory room: Calm Water Sensory Tent. Designed to mimic stationary sensory rooms used for individuals with autism, dementia, sensory processing disorders, and more, this mobile tent will be at large Riverfront events in Promenade Park. The individual’s experience in the tent is entirely customized and targets sensory seeking or avoidant needs. Adult supervision is required. Stays in the tent are limited to 15 minutes. Anyone desiring this extra help to enjoy at large public events is encouraged to sign up for a time slot ahead of time by emailing Empty time slots are otherwise awarded on a first come, first served basis during the event. This program is proudly sponsored by the AWS Foundation. Fall 2021 Promenade Park Events featuring the Calm Water Sensory Tent include:

Muddy River Concert Series

Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown

Fright Night: Raven Scavenger Hunt
