New & Noteworthy Stories

Promenade Park

Fort Wayne returns to its historical riverfront with the opening of Promenade Park, a development that renews Fort Wayne’s three rivers as a regional destination for recreation, arts, and culture. This one-of-a-kind park joins natural rivers with downtown Fort Wayne's thriving urban center.

The Landing

Fort Wayne’s story began as an important stop along the Erie Canal. Today, you can feel the history of our city in The Landing – once the spot where canal boats docked to unload their goods, now a food destination. On this walkable block, sip on cocktails under the Bison Mural at Nawa’s outdoor patio, grab a brew and BBQ at the Landing Beer Company, try new Cali-Mex flavors at Mercado, or discover new dishes at the three other dining destinations. Plus, the Landing is located a block south of Promenade Park.

A Fort Wayne Signature Hotel - The Bradley

A partnership between Barbara Bradley Baekgaard (co-founder of Fort Wayne headquartered Vera Bradley) and Provenance Hotels, a Portland, Oregon-based hotel owner and operator. The Bradley will combine classic Midwest charm with modern design and is the cornerstone of Fort Wayne’s new dining district, The Landing. The 124-room property will feature a rooftop bar, a ground-floor restaurant and retail space, and many other experiential amenities.
