Promenade Park

Cue the Confetti!

Fort Wayne, Indiana is excited to announce the opening of Promenade Park – the Midwest’s newest destination!

This one-of-a-kind park joins our natural rivers to our thriving urban center and is the Midwest’s newest destination for recreation, arts, and culture.

Fort Wayne’s three rivers, The St Mary’s, the St Joseph, and the Maumee, are a great source of entertainment, exploration and fun. Adventure the trails along the water, discover family fun attractions like the treetop canopy trail and kid’s canal, and take to the water on a riverboat cruise or kayak rental!

In addition, for parking and access to the park all year round, parking is available with on-street parking, the Plaza garage, and Freimann Square.  (Parking Map)

Promenade Park, the first phase of Fort Wayne’s transformational Riverfront Fort Wayne project, offers a unique location to help further connect Fort Wayne’s rivers to downtown amenities including dining, shopping, attractions, events, and activities.
