Promenade Park, Phase 1
When plans for a park in the first phase of Riverfront Development were announced, the Fort Wayne Park Foundation was one of the first organizations to pledge its support. In December of 2016, the Park Foundation pledged to raise $1,500,000 to provide construction funding for the Park Foundation Pavilion in what is now called Promenade Park. With a generous $500,000 match from the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne as well as support from area individuals, businesses and foundations, our goal was reached in the spring of 2017 and construction was begun in the fall. Promenade Park will transform our downtown area and we are proud that the Park Foundation supports its development. We look forward to watching the community embrace Promenade Park and delight in its many family-centered riverfront activities, features and programs.
