Press release from Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation:
Master Plan Revealed for Dimension Ford Property
(January 7, 2011) – In the spring of 2010, the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department held public input meetings regarding the development of the Dimension Ford property.
As a result of public input, the first step of a master plan has been created and will be presented to the Nebraska Neighborhood Association on January 13, 7 – 8:30 pm at the United Faith Presbyterian Church, 1616 W. Main Street. (Please use the rear parking lot and enter through the rear door.) On January 17, 7 – 8:30 pm, the Master Plan will be presented to the West Central Neighborhood Association at the Wellspring Building, 1316 Broadway. Conceptual drawings will be presented that evening.
Since the Dimension Ford property is located in the flood way, there were both challenges and opportunities associated with developing a park which would serve the need of the neighborhood, the community and the city. The acquisition of the property provided a unique chance to beautify this important gateway into downtown Fort Wayne and Swinney Park.
